This is a reminder that the second Annual Meeting of Library UX Chicago will take place from 1:00 to 4:00 PM on Thursday, December 15, at the Illinois Institute of Technology’s Paul J. Galvin Library. Join us for a review of our past year of work, and to preview and discuss next year’s activities. We will also be holding a “Lightning Rounds” event, so that we may share and celebrate the assessment, user experience, and design-thinking successes of our colleagues this year.
