Use & Usability Best Practices & Guidelines working documents are organized in Open Science Framework and are stored in a shared Google Drive folder.
- building on the previous lit review and tagging effort, and extracting our focus from the results of Surveying the Landscape: Use and Usability Assessment of Digital Libraries.
- modifying the lit review tagging dictionary to meet our needs
- collecting additional resources to add to those already tagged
- reviewing existing and pending related standards
We expect to drill down to compare how others measure various aspects and develop their studies.
We will compare and contrast use of terms and measures across the literature, incorporate standards, and develop guidelines, which we expect to share as a white paper.
In the areas where we encounter conflicts and variations, we will report on our findings and engage the community to determine how to move forward to resolve the issues necessary to develop guidelines.
This will provide an initial starting point from which we expect to broaden our scope, with the ultimate goal of developing guidelines and best practices for user & usability studies for digital libraries.
We are seeking broader participation!
