The Discovery and User Experience (DUX) department oversees the the IU Bloomington Libraries website and the discovery tool OneSearch@IU, as well as related online services; we also participate actively in the ongoing development of the discovery layer interface for IUCAT, the IU Libraries' shared statewide online catalog. We proactively seek opportunities to collaboratively deliver transformative experiences that facilitate discovery and strengthen scholarship at Indiana University.

We strive to exceed expectations for internal and external constituencies as we develop, design, deliver, and support innovative services, systems, and tools. We embrace a user-centered approach, identifying and anticipating user needs through data analysis, usability testing, and assessment. We subscribe to a philosophy of continuous improvement achieved through an iterative design process to selectively implement existing and emerging technologies.

In partnership with library and campus units, DUX works to enhance enduser success and to fulfill our shared mission to support the teaching, learning and research of the University community.
