== Addressing users and user needs: The User Studies Working Group white paper ==
 
Participants identified four assessment topics to explore during the [https://docs.google.com/document/d/1rLdMSPCbR_F-hE0ZhWzS70IBGEMh1450ff0x_ioPrIk/edit Assessment Breakout Session] at the 2014 DLF Forum:
 
# User/Usability studies
# Identifying users and uses
# Return On Investment (ROI)
# Reuse of content/what do users do with content
 
These four groups will make up the focus of a white paper on assessing users and user needs.  The working group will complete a series of tasks to generate the white paper:
 
# Compile a [https://docs.google.com/document/d/1AVlT3QlmhbcUmoRtZ0hpvEhpbD9_Eld5bHsa-JNHX24/edit?usp=sharing bibliography]

# Draft and publish a white paper -- '''In Progress'''
 
The working group will publish a draft of the the white paper for public comment prior to the 2015 DLF Forum. The final draft will be released shortly after the forum.
