  • Using the top level of our draft IA and a subset of the tasks previously defined.
  • Using the top level of our draft IA and a subset of the tasks previously defined.
  • 31 total completed (6 in person); 42 abandoned 
  • citation tools should be listed under research & writing tools and teaching tools
  • Note: some undergrads during in-person testing did not know what “Adobe Illustrator” was.
  • Some of the “wrong” answers could also do this task (Research by format, research databases)
  • Users may associate printing with “computers and equipment” as well as with “print, copy, scan”
  • Undergrads noted that they didn’t know they could do this (probably faculty and grads too). All segments had moderate scores here.
  • Undergrads during in-person tests didn’t know what JSTOR was. Faculty and grad did bad at this too, so was that the issue?
  • Not as bad it looks since we didn’t include “Instructional Tutorials & Guides” as an answer.
    Tells us that database tutorials should be linked from database list, research & writing tools, and teaching tools;
  • All user types did equally bad at this (grads scored a “1”). Undergrads did not know what “self-publishing” means.

  • We mapped existing DOD records to new subjects/formats and assigned subject librarians. Also reviewed duplicate records, alternate titles, etc. Will be asking librarians to review information, write descriptions, and complete additional fields.

  • Styling for LibAnswers (By Gabe)
    Launch of the site
    Updates for the main website
    “Ask Us”, “Chat”
    new footer
    more streamlined navigation to/from LA
  • Long-reported that users treat the upper right search box as a site search
    With the transition to Summon, the WorldCat box doesn’t make sense
    Changed to our Google custom search
    It’s the same site search we’ve always had, but Gabe made it look nice
    Also the way it’s included in the site is more flexible than in the past
  • Summon will be doing an update on their end…today?
  • Bye-bye LRO
  • Bye-bye LRO
  • LibGuides for the fall
    Bye-bye LRO
  • With the new initiatives around Arizona Now, it’s more clear than ever that the Giving site needs some attention.
  • We’re starting with content updates and moving on to a better site for giving.
  • Upcoming UI prototyping
    Continuing iterations on our planning and sprinting process
  • What does it all mean??
