User Experience Tools for Beginners: Home

How to Use This Toolbox

If you're anything like we were when we started practicing User Experience (UX) Design, you're not an expert and you have budget, time or other constraints to consider. We put together this toolbox to show librarians who are new to UX that these methods and tools are accessible to beginners. Use the rating system (see below) to determine if a tool will work for you.

Who Are We?

We are two librarians at a small graduate health sciences school who have gradually integrated UX design and research into our services. After two years of using various UX tools and methods, we wanted to package our experience in a way that could help other librarians get started with UX design.  Find out more about us from our home page.
