Keynote at Designing for Digital 2016

Having a good time this week at the Designing for Digital Conference. This great UX conference is part of the now famous ER&L Conference held annually in Austin. This year’s keynote was from Jesse James Garrett of Adaptive Path fame. He spoke a bit about UX themes but I found his comment about the following really hit home “…when the product does not resonate with people, they then hold themselves to blame.” See his slide for that below…

Who Gets the Blame?

2015 HathiTrust Annual Member Mtg

This week I am in Chicago, IL for the HathiTrust Annual Members Meeting as well as some side meetings for the HT Program Steering Committee and the HT Board. We will be talking about the latest accomplishments of the HathiTrust Research Center as well as work that we have done in the Scholar’s Commons and Scholarly Commons at Indiana University and the University of Illinois Libraries. We are meeting in the Big 10 Center in Rosemont which is a great place for a meeting.
