ARLD Day 2019 Welcomes Keynote Speaker Matthew Reidsma. Matthew Reidsma is the Web Services Librarian at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. He was a co-founder and former Editor-in-Chief of Weave: Journal of Library User Experience, a peer-reviewed, open access journal for Library User Experience professionals. He is the author of Responsive Web Design for Libraries published by ALA TechSource, Customizing Vendor Systems for Better User Experiences from Libraries Unlimited, and the forthcoming Masked by Trust: Bias in library discovery from Library Juice Press. He speaks about design ethics, user experience, and usability around the world. Library Journal named him a “Mover and Shaker” in 2013, which led to many unfortunate dance-related jokes in the Reidsma household.
In this keynote presentation, Ethical UX, Matthew Reidsma confronts the ethical dimensions of user experience work in libraries. He will also be leading the afternoon workshop “Inward UX: Improve your library’s work culture with UX.”
