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 join the panel and participate in a study, you will be rewarded with a gift as a thank you for your 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.
Participating in our 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, typically two cinema tickets or an equivalent, as a thank you for your time. You can choose to leave the panel at any time.
Sign up for the panel
You sign up for the panel by filling out and submitting the form that you find via the link below.
During the autumn term we will conduct usability testing on the communal website for all of the libraries at Lund university, http://www.lub.lu.se/en/ .
During winter and spring we will also begin usability testing on what will eventually become our new library catalogue, LUBcat.
