This talk is part of the Culture Analytics and User Experience Design Workshop organized by the UCLA's Institute for Pure & Applied Mathematics, April 11 - 15, 2016.

Abstract:
This talk will provide an insight into the Building Inspector, Oral History, and other projects developed at New York Public Library Labs, with an emphasis on design and HCI-related challenges and iteration processes. It will cover the rationale as to when NYPL Labs uses (or does not use) computational tools for data extraction and improvement, and how the library is learning to collaborate with its users on the creation of digital resources.
