The Digital Library Federation‘s Assessment Interest Group‘s User Experience and Cultural Assessment Working Groups are hosting a Twitter chat on December 5th, 2017 at 6pm Pacific / 7pm Mountain / 8pm Central / 9pm Eastern.
The chat will focus on the ethical implications of designing user personas as they apply to digital collection and repository technologies. These effects are often inscribed by white-straight-cisgendered librarians’ and technologists’ perspectives and values, and influence digital collection building and repository system development and maintenance. The intent of this #critlib #dlfaig chat will be to underscore and outline the snowball effect of early stage human-centered design processes influenced and perpetuated by systemic inequalities.
We welcome your voice in this upcoming engaging conversation about ethical user personas for digital collections.
Details, including the intended questions for the chat and suggested resources for discussion, can be found at: http://critlib.org/user-personas-for-digital-collections/
