Oregon State University Libraries and Press has reorganized its circulation, reference and building management services into a new department, focusing directly on the experience of library users. The Library Experience and Access Department (LEAD) was designed to meet evolving needs with access to user-focused, proactive, and flexible services and spaces that enrich learning, teaching and research. Our new organization gives us the opportunity to explore user experience in a comprehensive, holistic way that includes our physical space. In our first year, LEAD has investigated ways of evaluating and revitalizing in-person services, through signage and concierge service projects and collaboration with students in the OSU Department of Design and Human Experience.
LEADing the Way: UX IRL @ OSU.
