Continued institutional investment in digital archives is predicated on their sustained access and use. Researchers and staff connect with the archives through interfaces. Interfaces bring together design decisions and interaction opportunities. The User Experience (UX) Design field has developed methods and tools that have the potential to enhance the archive’s ability to connect its services and collections to designated communities. In this webcast, we review these methods and tools in the context of planning for digital archives access. Participants will learn existing and potential applications of UX principles to digital archives administration through presentation and discussion.

Upon completion of this course, you will:

  • Identify established user experience design methods and tools.
