Building a digital resource collection for your department or institution is one major step towards providing access to rich online resources, but how do you ensure that your resource makes your users happy rather than frustrated, or even angry? Ask them! There are many reasons why gathering user feedback is often an afterthought to the process of creating and launching a digital platform, but it does not have to be. Any time is a good time for usability testing, although the sooner you know what’s wrong, the sooner you can fix it to accommodate your users’ needs. In this session you will learn about a variety of approaches to usability testing addressing a variety of stages within the process including planning, implementation, interpreting result, responding to results, and repetition. Be prepared to walk away with tangible ideas that you can implement right away at your home institution.
