Welcome to Module 8: User Experience

This week, we will explore the importance of user experience.  The link for Module 8 can be found here.

NOTE: The Information Sources Survey its due this Thursday 10/15 by 5pm PT. 🙂
Action Items:
  • I graded all the Blog Reports submitted. Thank you for your hard work! You’ll find your grades in Canvas.
  • Consider the importance of user needs and wants as you explore the module this week. LIS professionals work tirelessly to serve the interests of their constituents in any number of information environments.
  • Continue to search for peer-reviewed articles, community resources, research-based resources and to begin thinking about the remaining formal assignments. The rest of the work you do is the most scholarly and important of the semester.
  • Now is the time to get serious about the Literature Review Matrix if you haven’t already. Start here.
  • Remember to use the INFO 200 LibGuide to assist your research and contact our  King Library Liaisons if you need assistance refining your searches.
