Centering Students with Disabilities: An Accessible User Experience Study of a Library Research Guide, by Lisa Bouffard Campbell and Brittany Kester
Library practitioners can use digital accessibility standards to inform and evaluate accessible design, but how can we ensure online learning objects, such as library research guides, are both accessible and usable for students with disabilities?
First Generation Students' Experiences and Perceptions of an Academic Library's Physical Spaces by Teresa Schultz, Kim Anderson, Mary Martini Smith, Tati Mesfin, Heather Damonte, and Corinne Masegian
There remains a lack of literature looking at how first-generation students experience and feel about academic library spaces. The authors sought to fill this gap by conducting a mixed-methods research study at a large university.
Book Discussion: Library Signage and Wayfinding Design: Communicating Effectively with Your Users by Mark Aaron Polger, by Josh Boyer, Edward Joseph Luca, and Bhuva Narayan
In this Dialog Box contribution, the authors discuss the strengths, weaknesses, and areas of further exploration of Polger's book on Library Signage and Wayfinding Design.
We wish to express gratitude to the authors for choosing Weave as the venue for sharing their work with our community.
