 Lessons along the way… (1)
 • Commonalities & differences (observ.)
 • Support study & leisure (brainst.) • “Collaborate, Create, Personalize, Explore, Simulate, Relax, Search, Navigate” • Encourage users to use library services (intvw.) • Stimulate curiosity, “surprise” • Rethink "classical" library catalog interaction (query) • Utilizing usage logs & data for improvement • “Personalizing" approaches

 Lessons along the way… (2)
 • Importance of data • Enrich existing catalog data (covers, abstracts) • Utilize subject vocabularies & mappings • Suitability data, visualization & screen size • some visualizations don’t ‘fit’ the data • some visualizations don’t ‘fit’ the screen • Usefulness of existing frameworks to speedup development • For instance, D3js • Large contrast with existing library catalogs & systems • Need for testing novel tools..

 Lessons along the way… (3) 
 • Opportunities for integrating apps into library space • Collection-focused: Science Fiction • Event-focused: Abel Prize, Hidden Figures • A new object in the library..! • “What is it?” “A touch table?” “Is it a freezer?” • …some encouragement needed • “Touch me!” icon • Gaining experience in touch app development • Practical issues (design f/touch, ‘kiosk’, content ..) • Understandability & usability • Re-usability

 Lessons along the way… (4) 
 • Monitoring and detecting issues • navigation: “clicks leading to nowhere”, swipes • Unused app content (depth vs breadth) • Redesign based on usage data • e.g. Hidden Figures: after two weeks • Developing a “toolbox” for analytics b/o usage data • microticks: gather data • python scripts: automatically summarize data • One chance for a good impression • Optimize for first interaction (importance of content) • Match user interests…
