College & Research Libraries, v62 n4 p355-67 Jul 2001
The purpose of this study was to assess usability of an academic library Web site and to better understand how faculty and students complete typical tasks using one. Despite their success in completing the tasks, participants experienced difficulties in knowing where to start and with the site's information architecture-in particular while interpreting categories and labels.
