LITA Personas Task Force

Coming soon to the LITA blog: the results of the LITA Personas Task Force. The initial report contains a number of useful persona types and was submitted to the LITA Board at the ALA Midwinter 2017 conference. Look for reports on the process and each of the persona types here on the LITA blog starting in March 2017.

As a preview, go behind the scenes with this short podcast presented as part of the LibUX Podcast series, on the free tools the Task Force used to do their work.

In this podcast Amanda L. Goodman (@godaisies) gives you a peek into the work of the LITA Persona Task Force, who are charged with defining and developing personas that are to be used in growing membership in the Library and Information Technology Association.

The ten members of the task force were from academic, public, corporate, and special libraries located in different timezones. With such challenges, the Task Force had to use collaborative tools which were easy to use for all. Task member, Amanda L. Goodman, presented this podcast originally on LibUX’s Metric podcast.
