This research study examines UX education in LIS curriculum. Out of 67 program websites inspected, 66% offered UX courses. Twenty-six respondents of an online survey reported 37 UX courses that they teach. Syllabi analysis of 42 UX courses provided insights into learning outcomes, session topics, projects, and more. Although instructors believed in the importance of UX in LIS, they saw the value of UX being significantly less appreciated by their schools/programs. Participants’ responses regarding final projects, the presence of a usability lab, and the teaching of UX online versus face-to-face, highlighted challenges and innovations in LIS UX pedagogy.
