Zimmerman, Don; Paschal, Dawn Bastian
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v35 n3 p227-240 May 2009
In an exploratory study, participants (n = 18) completed 11 usability tasks to assess ease of use of two Web sites, and then a Web site perception questionnaire for each. Participants rated both Web sites positively, but 25% and 36% could not complete all tasks; doing so required more than a minute to complete. (Contains 2 figures and 7 tables.)
