Help us improve the library
The University Library is responsible for most of the search systems that you use when searching for books or other materials. To be able to develop these systems, and other services, we are looking for people to volunteer for a test panel.
If you choose to be a part of the panel you will be contacted regarding various types of user studies. These could be usability studies for our search systems, but also studies on our library space or for other services, in the form of interviews, focus groups or surveys.
You are not committing to taking part in any study when signing up for the panel. If you do choose to participate in a study you will recieve a small gift as a thank you for your time. You can choose to leave the panel at any time.
The panel is open to everyone, whether you are a student or staff at the university or not, you are welcome to join. You do not need to have a library account or frequently visit our library or use our services. We strive to work against discrimination in our services so we wish to recruit a panel that is as diverse as possible.
Sign up for the panel
Send an email to project manager Åsa Forsberg asa.forsberg [at] ub.lu.se to sign up for the panel.
During October 2017 we will be conducting usability tests on LUBsearch, the system that you use for searching our digital library. The purpose of these tests is to find out if LUBsearch is fit for purpose. During the test participants will be given tasks to perform using LUBsearch to help us discover usability issues with the system.
During the autumn term we will also conduct usability testing on the communal website for all of the libraries at Lund university, http://www.lub.lu.se/en/ .
