  3. 3. Method <ul><li>Start where most practicable (where feedback most immediately available) </li></ul><ul><li>Iterative development of methodology (different per resource/DCAP?) </li></ul><ul><li>Work with what we have (DCAPs as they currently stand, not further hypothesis) </li></ul><ul><li>Test interfaces & paper prototyping </li></ul><ul><li>Include everybody (repository managers, users, developers, whole community) </li></ul>
