UX

Creating a user-focused vision for Harvard Library’s website

As an integral member of the library’s web team, I informed team decision-making with user research. Activities included:

  • Managing the discovery research phase and creating personas
  • Running on-the-spot research projects to determine user-friendly language
  • Researching IA structure through card sorting and tree testing
  • Conducting usability testing


Designing a digital collections platform

Through work with digital strategy and imaging teams, I created wireframes and interactive mock-ups to test potential users’ needs and desires when using digital objects from the library. Activities included:

  • Creating wireframes based on collaborative staff “sketching” sessions
  • Building interactive prototype testing to determine interaction preferences
