Student-Centered Design: Creating LibGuides Students Actually Use

Having trouble creating and maintaining research guides that students actually use? We were! Learn how we addressed several years of low usage statistics and general dissatisfaction with our guides by creating a new blueprint based on student feedback. Our Research Guides Assessment Task Force conducted a months-long study using card sorting and usability testing methods to uncover students’ understanding of the research process and resources. We shared the results of our study, highlighting what students are really looking for, as well as tips for using these design research methods yourself!
