Scope & Objectives

The Samvera User Experience (UX) interest group meets to discuss any aspect of the user experience, including usability, design, UX methods, and user interface consistency. The purpose of these discussions is to improve users' experiences with applications and systems. Such improvements are expected to occur through sharing of information and expertise across projects and institutions. The interest group began as a result of  Hydra User Experience Unconference Session: Friday 1:45-3 p.m. at the  Hydra Connect January 2014 meeting in San Diego.

Meeting Times & Communication Channels

2:00pm EST:  Meetings are currently scheduled once a month on the third Tuesday of each month.
Call connection details will be posted in the Slack UX Interest Group channel 15 minutes prior to meeting start time.



Connection information: Zoom:  https://cornell.zoom.us/j/4468846520 (Use when Jenn Colt is leading the meeting)

Calls are publicized beforehand via an email sent to samvera-community, samvera-partners, and samvera-tech.  

Email discussion of UX issues is welcome - please use samvera-community or samvera-tech as primary routes, depending on the nature of the topic, and prefix your email subjects with [UXIG] so the Google Group archives can be quickly searched for relevant discussions.

This month the call will focus on Spotlight, the Blacklight plug-in enabling the presentation of online exhibitions.

Discussion will center around the following areas, though there will also hopefully be space to raise other questions as well within these:

  • Current Spotlight functionality
  • Current goals for Spotlight development
  • Adopting Spotlight - what barriers exist that the team can look to address?
  • Additional features - what could Spotlight usefully do in the future?
  • Developing Spotlight - how the community can assist in achieving the goals discussed
