Usability has been a buzzword for some time now, but what is the process for making the the transition toward a better user experience, and hence, better designed library sites?

The approach involves the use of rapid prototyping, with Bootstrap , to make sure we are on track with what users and stakeholders expect up front, and throughout the development process.
