mary jacobs library foundation: a note on research and visioning

The Mary Jacobs Library Foundation works to find financial and community support for the Mary Jacobs Library, situated in Montgomery Township, New Jersey. “The Foundation’s mission is to provide a library building for the community. We strive to maintain an innovative, safe and welcoming environment that inspires learning, advancing technology and cultural engagement in the community.” I created a review document for the purpose of understanding and clarifying some ideas for the foundation. The research was drawn primarily from my long-standing association with the library while fundraising for Ootsav; the notes from a meeting and discussions with board members.

another first step

Until now the work that I did has been about creating prototypes for developers as a product of my user experience research. I love working with people, understanding their contexts and listening to their stories (demographics and the sociologically significant data). Giving this sociological perspective to the stories has been the process I followed.  In the past, I have interviewed bikers, job-seekers, administrators, patients to understand their user pain points. I study their specific context, look into the related stories in other demographics, look at other societal contexts to understand how things are different and if there is options of adaptability in the current context. A contextual review, a heuristic analysis, a comparative assessment and data analysis is what is required to get to the pain point.

The work I do is possible due to an immediate empathy that I am able to advance to a context. I put myself in the users shoes then calculate and assess what their story looks like in terms of technology, time, need and usage. I then find what’s lacking in the context of an interface and a design and take it from there. To me clients/users are people first, always!

Some of the outcomes I provide are personas, journey maps and solution prototypes to developers. These days however, fixing the problems with technology is a way I do it. I went back to school to learn to code and I am loving every minute of it.

My background always had development tools but I am now a certified developer.
