UX apps to make your research easier (and more fun!)

I reviewed a few apps this week for the plasma slides that we have in the Information Centre at Cambridge Judge Business School and I enjoyed some of the apps so much, I just had to share them.

So what does a UX Librarian do anyway?

I’ve been in my new job as UX Librarian at Cambridge Judge Business School Information and Library Services for just over two months now so I thought it was high time I wrote about what I actually do. The TL;DR version: lots! I first heard about the UX job when Andy Priestner blogged about it,Continue reading “So what does a UX Librarian do anyway?”
