UX Made EZ: An Agile Approach to Testing a Digital Collection
Kathryn Gucer provides a case study describing her experience in designing and conducting usability testing of a subject-based digital collection at the National Agricultural Library: the Animal Welfare Act History Digital Collection. While information professionals in libraries increasingly express a need for conducting flexible, low-cost, in-house usability testing on their digital collections, little literature exists addressing this need. This article speaks directly to readers among these groups and offers them a model for developing their own user tests based on Steve Krug’s Rocket Surgery Made Easy and, more broadly, on Agile methodology.
