Library User Experience Community of Practice


The purpose of the Library User Experience (UX) Community of Practice is to provide a forum for CAUL Member institution staff to engage in collegial professional learning and information sharing related to professional UX practice that supports systemic user-centred decision-making across library functions. The Library UX Community of Practice empowers academic libraries - regardless of their UX stage or resourcing - to share and grow professional UX knowledge and capability so that as an industry we can better understand, design, and evaluate library user experiences that matter for our clients.

The Community of Practice provides a forum for:

  • exchange of ideas
  • information sharing
  • peer support
  • exploration of issues
  • discussion of recent developments and practises
  • community-led training or professional development.

Group operations


Membership is open to two members per institution, to be nominated by the institution.
