Abstract
Based on the existing, and developing new methods of studying user experience, we will prepare a methodological framework, appropriate for evaluation of digital libraries, as well as other types of bibliographic information systems. We plan to prepare a systematic iterative procedure consisting of theoretical and practical evaluation aspects. Our draft framework, based on theoretical and practical analysis of existing evaluation approaches, will identify various aspects of evaluation and will contain a set of methods (existing ones and those developed within the project), appropriate for evaluation of as wide spectrum as possible of various scenarios in connection with user experience in bibliographic information systems. This framework will be tested in a series of steps in the process of evaluating the existing Slovenian (COBISS, dLib) and foreign bibliographic information systems. During this process the framework will be adapted and refined based on the results of this analysis. The framework for the evaluation of user experience in digital libraries or bibliographic information systems in general is largely a worldwide novelty, since so far the focus has been on efficiency and success. It will also require the development of original or innovatively refined existing evaluation methods for investigating user experience. As such, the evaluation framework will be potentially useful in all situations where the goal is to evaluate a bibliographic information system. On the other hand evaluation of existing examples of bibliographic inforrmation systems enables their improvement, including the system COBISS which is maintained by our project partner IZUM.
Significance for science
The methodological framework, as the project result, is not bound to a particular cultural space, and is as such potentially useful anywhere in the world where the goal would be to evaluate a digital library or any other bibliohraphic information system from the view of user experience. The overview of relevant methodological approaches and their link to individual dimensions of user experience can contribute to a faster development of user-friendlier bibliographic information systems. Due to a currently large set of possible methods and a relatively non-systematic use within the user experience such framework would serve as a useful tool also to practitioners (developers of digital libraries and other bibliographic information systems), researchers, and students.
Significance for the country
The results of evaluation of Slovenian bibliographic systems, particularly system COBISS, developed by our project partner IZUM, can be directly used in further development of these systems. The project woudl also set up the long needed research co-operation between the Department of Librarianship, Information Science and Book Studies, as the centre of basich research, and IZUM as the central developer of the bibliographic information system.
