  5. 5. Research questions● Is it feasible to implement DL tools and services that are based on simple architectures? – How should simplicity be defined? – What are the comparative advantages and disadvantages of simple architectures in comparison to existing systems?
  6. 6. Plan A
  7. 7. Initial plan● Pilot study – Digital library collection prototype● Theory derivation – simplyCT principles – Case study of existing tools● Design and Implementation – Extension of prototype DLS (Bonolo) – Collection integration
  8. 8. Progress made● Research Proposal● Definition of simplicity – Derivation of principles● Publication – DJLIT: In Search of Simplicity● Background chapter – Draft #1
  9. 9. Plan B
  10. 10. TODO list● Implementation – SimplyCT-base tool: August 2012● Evaluation – User study: July 2012 – UX study: August 2012 – Effectiveness: October 2012● Dissertation – Submission: February 2012
