Library UX Community Forums Signage There are reasons why good architects create wayfinding Reply To: There are reasons why good architects create wayfinding

I’ve felt the same way about signage – surely this is a UX librarian issue if there ever was one.

I was in a meeting with some colleagues Monday talking about signage. We started talking about different methods we could use to assess users attention and retention of information on both digital and print signs.

We discussed having patrons give some of our campus ambassadors (their peers) tours of the library and then ask those patrons giving the tour questions about any signs they may or should have seen.

We were also talking about love/break-up letters. I’ve been trying to find an issue where this method would work because I think it would be fun. We’re thinking about doing something around valentine’s day for this.

Have you done any user assessment to see how your signage solution has impacted library use?
