    • 1. From User Studies to User Experience User-Centered Design of Next-Generation Catalogs and other Emerging Library Services Anne Christensen State and University Library Hamburg, Germany Digital Libraries à la Carte 2010 Tilburg University, The Netherlands, July 30
    • 2. Agenda
      • What and why: Next generation catalogs and user experience
      • Methods of user-centered design
      • Results from research in Hamburg and other projects
      • Conclusions and discussion
    • 3. Additional „layers“ for discovery of catalog and other data. Integrated Library System Next generation catalog ACQ CAT OUS OPC
    • 4. More than just some lipstick on the pig.
    • 5.
      • Which features do you connect with „next generation“ library services?
    • 6. Export Relevance Ranking Browsing Mashups Spell checking Reference Management Catalog enrichment Visualization
    • 7. Easy Quick Comprehensive Inspiring Likeable      User Experience 
    • 8. Why we should care:
    • 9. http://www.slideshare.net/idaiskald/ive-got-google-why-do-i-need-you
    • 10. http://www.slideshare.net/idaiskald/ive-got-google-why-do-i-need-you
    • 11.
      • Homegrown next generation catalog
      • Technology: Solr, Catalyst, Starfish (metadata normalization)
      • Prototype stage
      • Development funded by local e-learning consortium
      http://beluga.sub.uni-hamburg.de
    • 12. „ What I really like is that you actually involve people who are going to suffer from the system.“ Student in focus group for beluga, January 2009
    • 13. Methods of user-centered design Focus groups Anthropological studies Usability Tests
    • 14. Anthropological Studies (examples) Foster, Nancy F, and Susan Gibbons. Studying Students: The Undergraduate Research Project at the University of Rochester . Chicago: Association of College and Research Libraries, 2007 Akselbo, Jeppe L. The Hybrid Library - from the Users' Perspective: A Report for the Deff Project "the Loaners' Expectations and Demands for the Hybrid Library" . Århus: Statsbiblioteket, 2006
    • 15. Focus groups with both faculty and students, 35 participants, focus on reference management and social functionality students got paid 30 € for 2 hours Usability Tests for prototypes 0.5 and 0.7 15 students participated, got paid 20 € for 1 hour supported by Usability Lab at the Department of Information Science
    • 16. „ Everything you always wanted to know about the catalog“
      • Making of the catalog
      • Who is entering the data?
      • Who decides what subject headings are used?
      • Comprehensiveness and delivery
      • Which libraries does the catalog cover?
      • What exactly does the catalog contain? Are articles included?
      • Will I find everything on my topic?
      • How do I obtain the books I want?
      • Search
      • Who decides how the results are sorted?
      • Are there any conventions for entering the name of an author?
      • How do I know if the term I used for searching was correct?
      • Not just a list
      • Why aren‘t books on the same topic linked to each other?
      • How do I know if this book is suitable for my paper?
      • How can I see if something is a good introduction to my topic?
    • 17. Results and conclusions from our and other research Good synopsis of various studies! Dickey, Timothy J, and Lynn S. Connaway. The Digital Information Seeker: Report of the Findings from Selected Oclc, Rin, and Jisc User Behaviour Projects . Bristol, England: HEFCE, 2010.
    • 18. 1/10 Students expect ready bibliographies. „ What I would like to see are lists of books for my topic.“
    • 19. Best practice: Wiwi-Werkbank http://wiwi-werkbank.de/
    • 20. 2/10 Users don‘t always understand our metadata.
    • 21. Sometimes a cover helps
    • 22. beluga: drilldown „Genre“, but metadata is insufficient
    • 23. 3/10 Users are sensitive to the neutrality of the catalog and the quality of its content.
    • 24. Enrich carefully „ Please don‘t mash it up with Amazon book reviews and other information from commercial sites Studierende und Lehrende in beluga-Fokusgruppen „ Why pull all sorts of s**** into the catalog when you have a table of contents or a link to Google Book Search?“
    • 25. 4/10 Students and faculty seek serendipity.
    • 26. Best Practice: Shelf browsing http://www.opl.on.ca/
    • 27. 5/10 Being like Google is very unfamiliar. „ Where is the advanced search?“
    • 28. Best Practice: Simple interface with a „safety net“ http://yufind.library.yale.edu/yufind/
    • 29. 6/10 Don‘t expect the catalog to become a social platform. „ Would rather write something about the book in Moodle“
    • 30. Credit points or ILL-vouchers are no suitable incentive for creation of content.
    • 31.  Opinions of fellow students and professors do seem to matter.
    • 32. The social stuff happens elsewhere.
    • 33. Library catalogs as aggregators for user-generated content related to books etc.?
    • 34. Best Practice: „Mini catalog“ with selected material and social features http://ub.meduniwien.ac.at/wpopac/
    • 35. 7/10 Sharing lists and recommendations are highly controversial.
    • 36. beluga: Sharing still pending
    • 37. Sharing lists „ My lists are pretty intimate.“ „ I don‘t want to do all the work for people.“ Student and teacher in focus group for beluga, January 2009
    • 38. Also controversial: Recommendations „ Professors are scarcely up to date“ Students in focus group for beluga, January 2009 „ I would like to know what my professor thinks about this book“
    • 39. Shared lists and recommendations would be a good starting point for unexperienced searchers.
    • 40. „ How do I know if I picked the right term?“ 8/10 Expectations regarding the „search experience“ are very high. „ Who decides how the results are sorted?
    • 41. Give users feedback about their search terms  Spell checking  Autocompletion  Faceted Browsing  Integration of thesauri as Linked Open Data
    • 42. Bibliographic data is not sufficient for powerful relevance ranking. Number of copies Circulation data Citations Publishers Usage in lists Impact Factor Download statistics
    • 43. Helpful or patronizing?
    • 44. Personalization might be an answer, but it‘s also controversial.
    • 45. 9/10 Users want more electronic resources, but need easier access.
    • 46. Best Practice: Include as much digital content as possible http://trove.nla.gov.au/
    • 47. Best Practice: Limit search to material available online http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/catalog/
    • 48. 10/10 Don‘t forget the delivery in all the discovery!
    • 49. Best Practice: Visualization of available copies on a map http://libris.kb.se/
    • 50. Summary
      • Social features have not kept their promise so far.
      • There are ample possibilites for enhancements in discovery and delivery.
    • 51. Discovery solutions: Wide variety of commercial and open source products
    • 52. Next generation catalog: Hall of Fame Make Buy
    • 53. http://www.flickr.com/photos/dcmarkie/315868918/ When did libraries stop to create their own tools?
    • 54. It‘s time for disruption and diversity.
    • 55. Next Generation Catalogs in Europe http://www.communitywalk.com/next_generation_catalogs_in_europe/next_generation_catalogs_in_europe/map/363838
    • 56. Whether you make it or buy it:
    • 57. ...know how your users work
    • 58. http://www.flickr.com/photos/chberge/3803475294/ Speed
    • 59. http://webcat.hud.ac.uk/perl/colour.pl?hex=EE4000 Serendipity
    • 60. http://www.flickr.com/photos/shivaj/2079666354/ Trust
    • 61. Trust and quality are main concerns of researchers regarding 2.0 and open science tools. Procter, R.; Williams, R.; Stewart, J.: If you build it, will they come? How researchers perceive and use web 2.0. Research Information Network. 2010.
    • 62. ...know where they fail.
    • 63. How to cite? How to get it? How to ask? How to choose?
    • 64. ... make sure to safe their time.
    • 65. Integration with Course Management Systems
    • 66. Integration with VREs http://www.sysmo-db.org/demo
    • 67. Controversial: Need for library instruction
    • 68. ...do something nice for them.
    • 69. Mobile Services http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/m/about.html http://cf.uba.uva.nl/mobiel/ Mobile Site Application
    • 70. Mobile Services Screenshots: Regina Pfeifenberger, InetBib2010
    • 71. Mobile Services http://www.bsb-muenchen.de/Mobile-App-Famous-books-Tre.virtuelle-angebote-app.0.html http://mobil.uni-koeln.de Mobile: 5 catalog queries per day Website: 6642 catalog queries per day
