    Dear Colleagues,

     

    The SAA User Experience and Accessibility and Disability Sections are pleased to announce we’ll be holding an hour-long open moderated panel discussion around User Experience, Accessibility, and Discovery on April 26 at 3pm EDT. We’re excited to welcome our panelists: Sean Aery (Digital Projects Developer, Duke University Libraries); Christine Di Bella (ArchivesSpace Program Manager, Lyrasis) and Brian Zelip (Front End Developer, ArchivesSpace) ; and Maija Anderson (Assistant Director and Program Manager for Open Strategies and Digital Content, Orbis Cascade Alliance) and Tamara Marnell (Systems Program Manager for Open Strategies and Digital Content, Orbis Cascade Alliance) who will talk about ArchivesWest. The conversation will be moderated by UX Section Steering Committee member Shaun Ellis (Library Software Engineer, Princeton University).


    The event will begin with brief introductions of our panelists and moderator, followed by  a lengthy discussion on the topic of user experience and accessibility of discovery platforms. There will be room for audience participation and discussion, as well so please feel free to bring any thoughts or questions relevant to these topics.
