Website Usability

  • first to-do: get 10 tasks and send those to Kristin
    • then market
  • Gov Docs Website usability study
    • determine our audiences (students, depository librarians, community, etc.)
    • what type of info are they looking for, what are they struggling to find?
    • any usual questions or problems that come up would be a good place to start
    • how do we reach community users? (physically or in person?)
    • maybe hold at Discovery Park (or DPL location--ask Siam Brennan about North Branch) so that parking is easier?
      • confusion about CRS is a common one
      • also confusion about Serial Set Inventory's purpose
  • figure out how to recruit participants
  • test with audience--also virtual testing for our depository librarian users
  • MMDL will recruit and test, and also report it
  • 10 tasks for testing users
    • the types of things they would come to the website to do (hours, materials, etc.)
    • make sure there aren't any leading questions
    • "what are government documents"
    • "where is the government documents department?"
    • "how do i contact someone in the government documents department?" (either service desk or the staff contact info)
    • questions about looking for digital collections
    • "how do i find government documents on the shelf?" (finding the right call number section)
    • at least one task on legal stuff
  • want 8-10 participants per group (5 minimum)
  • MMDL will do a demographic debriefing survey at the end, as well
  • are we providing incentives--if so, what?
    • don't need incentives for depository librarians
    • maybe the CyberCafe coupons/giftcards
    • maybe the set of the three albino squirrel buttons
