On behalf of Andy Priestner – a very useful and interactive conference, relevant for anyone interested in how we deliver services and support our users.
Bookings are now open for the fourth international User Experience in Libraries conference (commonly known as UXLibs), taking place 6-7 June at Sheffield Hallam University. The conference is suitable for any library staff engaged in user research of physical library spaces, digital platforms and services. This year we also have an optional half-day pre-conference workshop (5 June) for those new to User Experience (UX) research techniques.
Our keynotes are Christian Lauersen, library director at Roskilde University, Denmark, and inclusive designer and former punk Sara Leren from Sweden. We will also have talks from Dr Janine Bradbury (York St. John, UK) and Dr Kit Heyam (University of Leeds, UK) who will be presenting on BAME and Trans experiences of libraries.
Workshop leaders include: Shelley Gullikson (Carleton University Library, Ottawa), John Jung (University of Chicago Library), Bryony Ramsden (University of Huddersfield Library, UK), Eva Jirjahlke (Citizens Advice, London, UK), and Carl Barrow (University of Hull Library, UK).
The conference will explore how we design and deliver library services to our users, taking particular interest this time in the experience of minority groups and asking whether we can offer more inclusive experiences of libraries.

I hope you can join us!
