UX photo booth 2011 (My ideal library…)

A few weeks ago I helped out again with the MLibrary Undergraduate library’s annual “Party for Your Mind” event to welcome the students back and introduce new students to the library.

Like last year, I did a photo booth where I asked the students to complete the sentence “My ideal library ______” and like last year, I got a lovely combination of silly and serious responses. Quiet/Loud and food/sleeping were again popular themes!

My ideal library... loud & fun!

UX Photo booth

A couple of weeks ago, our Undergrad library hosted their annual “Party for Your Mind” event to welcome the students back and introduce new students to the library. They have scavenger hunts, video games, craft tables, palm readings, and of course free pizza.

I wanted to do something fun for this event with a bit of a UX twist so, we turned the new presentation practice room into a “photo booth.” Using pre-printed signs, we asked the students to complete the sentence “My ideal library _______” and then pose with their signs like a mug shot. We got some great shots and the students seemed to be pretty entertained by it.

Here are some of my favorites:

My ideal library…is located in my room
My ideal library…is quite enough to hear the computers hum
My ideal library…is easy to navigate (or really fun to get lost in)
My ideal library…is this.
