How can your archives, and the tools you employ, work better for your patrons? Conducting a user study is surprisingly easy and doesn't require special tech skills. The speakers demonstrate UX testing workflows, methodologies, and tools, using our own multi-institutional study of the Archive-It user interface as an example. You'll leave equipped with the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to create your own user study to make your systems more transparent and user-friendly.
