Librarians Do It Differently: Comparative Usability Testing With Students And Library Staff, Nancy Turner 2010 Syracuse University Library

Librarians Do It Differently: Comparative Usability Testing With Students And Library Staff, Nancy Turner

Libraries' and Librarians' Publications

Our experience as librarians suggests that library staff search and locate library resources differently than college students. We bring to our work knowledge about library collections and search tool functionality that may inform our strategies for finding library resources. Through our training and experience, we have developed more accurate mental models for the information universe for which our library website is a portal. The purpose of this research is to explore that hypothesis and if it has merit, to articulate those differences in information seeking behaviors, particularly search strategy and tool use. As those patterns of difference are identified, the ...


Where Book Art And Technology Mingle, Peter D. Verheyen, Richard Minsky 2010 Syracuse University

Although he creates impeccable fine bindings that have won international awards, Peter Verheyen's huge contribution to the field of book art has little to do with making or conserving physical books. His magum opus is the Book Arts Web (philobiblon.com), the main location on the Internet for book art information and resources, from online exhibitions to tutorials, opportunities, blogs, and reference materials.

Rock The Casbah: Calarts Student Behaviors And Habits, Jeffrey Gatten, Mike Bryant

LMU Librarian Publications & Presentations

The research question was simply, "How do students in an artistic and nontraditional setting view and act on the process of discovery?" The study utilized faculty interviews, student interviews, poster surveys, photo surveys, online surveys, and focus groups. The authors learned that art students expect to create their own individualized information-seeking paradigm, one that will not impose an external artistic perspective and may be ...
