This presentation will dive into the ongoing challenges that academic libraries often face when improving the user experiences of out-of-the-box and open source repositories. Fueling the challenges are the ambiguity and fast-changing nature within the field of digital scholarship and the constant flux of technology platforms and tools. Fortunately, many libraries are paying more attention to users’ motivations and responding by designing user interfaces that support particular formats and contexts. We’ll explore emerging opportunities with repositories in looking at how far libraries should go in providing customizations to balance stakeholder and user needs, and how to plan for users’ ever-shifting expectations.
This presentation was part of a NISO and NASIG webinar, "Library As Publisher, Part Two: UX and UI for the Library's Digital Collections" and was presented on March 14, 2018.
