Testing for Usability in the Design of a New Information Gateway
Speakers: Michelle Clairmont, Science & Engineering Librarian, The University of Arizona Library; Ruth Dickstein, Social Sciences Librarian, The University of Arizona Library; Vicki Mills, Undergraduate Services Librarian, The University of Arizona Library.

Seeking to understand user's needs, assumptions, and on-line behavior was critical in the design of The University of Arizona's new Information Gateway system. Focus groups helped direct the initial design and then usability studies shaped the prototypes and the end product. We will discuss both the methodology and the results of these studies.
