Book Description :

This landmark text captures a global cross-section of leading voices and provides a clear and coherent overview of the user studies domain and user issues in digital libraries. As the information environment becomes increasingly electronic, digital libraries have proliferated, but the focus has often been on innovations in technology and not the user. Although user needs have become a popular concept, in practice the users are rarely consulted in the development of services. Research and analysis of users is essential to fine-tune the content and approach of digital libraries to the diverging requirements and expectations of incredibly varied communities and to ensure libraries are effective, accessible and sustainable in the long term. Key topics include: • what is the place of user studies in digital libraries and what are the basic user study methods? • explaining user-centric studies, information behaviour and user experience studies • exploring user-study methods such as surveys, questionnaires, expert evaluation methods, eye tracking, deep log analysis, personae and ethnographic studies • critical issues around user studies such as evaluation of digital libraries, digital preservation, social media, the shift to mobile devices and ethics • user studies in specific types of institutions: libraries, archives, museums, audiovisual collections and art collections • the most popular questions and what to do next. Readership: Information professionals involved in supporting, developing or designing digital library services, researchers wanting to address the user dimension in their work and students on LIS and computer science courses who want to understand the importance of the user in information services.

Book Description :

This is the second book based on the 5S (Societies, Scenarios, Spaces, Structures, Streams) approach to digital libraries (DLs). Leveraging the first volume, on Theoretical Foundations, we focus on the key issues of evaluation and integration. These cross-cutting issues serve as a bridge for those interested in DLs, connecting the introduction and formal discussion in the first book, with the coverage of key technologies in the third book, and of illustrative applications in the fourth book. These two topics have central importance in the DL field, allowing it to be treated scientifically as well as practically. In the scholarly world, we only really understand something if we know how to measure and evaluate it. In the Internet era of distributed information systems, we only can be practical at scale if we integrate across both systems and their associated content. Evaluation of DLs must take place atmultiple levels, so we can address the different entities and their associated measures. Thus, for digital objects, we assess accessibility, pertinence, preservability, relevance, significance, similarity, and timeliness. Other measures are specific to higher-level constructs like metadata, collections, catalogs, repositories, and services.We tie these together through a case study of the 5SQual tool, which we designed and implemented to perform an automatic quantitative evaluation of DLs. Thus, across the Information Life Cycle, we describe metrics and software useful to assess the quality of DLs, and demonstrate utility with regard to representative application areas: archaeology and education. Though integration has been a challenge since the earliest work on DLs, we provide the first comprehensive 5S-based formal description of the DL integration problem, cast in the context of related work. Since archaeology is a fundamentally distributed enterprise, we describe ETANADL, for integrating Near Eastern Archeology sites and information. Thus, we show how 5S-based modeling can lead to integrated services and content. While the first book adopts a minimalist and formal approach to DLs, and provides a systematic and functional method to design and implement DL exploring services, here we broaden to practical DLs with richer metamodels, demonstrating the power of 5S for integration and evaluation.

Book Description :

Evaluation is a crucial step for the development and improvement of digital libraries. Unfortunately, nowadays only few studies are focused on this matter and even fewer concentrate on how evaluation is conducted in real-world digital libraries. This study contributes to the research by presenting the results of a qualitative case study carried out at the Loughborough University Library, based on data collected from eleven semi-structured interviews and documents. It shows how evaluation is performed in a real-world digital library, the knowledge and competences of the staff in charge of conducting it, the obstacles and barriers encountered and it examines what happens afterwards, in particular how results and recommendations are turned into profitable account. The research also aims to act as a reference model for those researchers who want to further investigate this field . It confirms that currently knowledge about how academic digital libraries deal with evaluation process is insufficient and it raises several new and controversial questions, which should bring the scientific community to investigate deeper into the reality of digital libraries.

Book Description :

The authors evaluated usability of digital libraries and selected BTH digital library system as a case study. As BTH offers a lot of e-resources but users still feel difficulty in accessing these e-resources and services. The goal of this research study is to explain the importance of usability in digital libraries and as well to measure user satisfaction level regarding usability of BTH digital library system. These problems are identified by using different usability evaluation techniques with different criteria and possible suggestions for improvements have been given in this research work. Usability testing (Think aloud protocol) and usability inquiry (questionnaires, interviews) methods were used in usability evaluation of BTH digital library system. Usability evaluation has been done by selection of different usability evaluation criteria namely Satisfaction, Memorability, Learnability, Efficiency, Effectiveness, Aesthetic, Reliability, Simplicity, Visibility, User Friendly, Relevancy and Easiness.
