Hello all -

Have an interest in User Experience? SLA New England is hosting a program
at EMC about *Creating a Quality User Experience*. The program will focus
on techniques that the EMC Corporation’s User Engagement team uses to
develop an effective user experience for its customers.  We will also
giveaway several user experience books thanks to Rosenfeld Media (

*Program Description*

What do your favorite websites, mobile apps, and other products have in
common?  Chances are it’s an awesome user experience which makes them stand
out.  User experience design draws on many disciplines from library and
information science, including human-computer interaction, indexing,
information retrieval, and even reference interviewing.  The need for
skilled professionals in this field only continues to grow, and LIS folks
are in high demand to fill roles at the forefront of high tech.

Join us as members of EMC’s User Engagement Team give an overview of the
fundamentals of fashioning a web-based experience which users will love.
Using real-world examples from their own work, Matt, Adam and Gary will
walk us through the elements of usability research, interaction design,
search behavior, and metadata management.  We’ll even have the opportunity
to test-drive one of the tools the team has used to conduct research.
