Last month, we shared the exciting news that we are redesigning the NIH Library website and will be launching the new site in January 2017. A key component of our redesign process is making sure the new website meets your needs. That is where you come in. We are looking for NIH staff to help test the new site in early December. Through this process, you will have an opportunity to influence the design of the new NIH Library website.
Testing will take place in the NIH Library and will last approximately one hour. All you will be asked to do is complete a series of basic tasks on the new site. At the conclusion, you will be asked a few open-ended questions about your experience. Your feedback will provide us with valuable information that will guide the next design phase.
We will be conducting the usability testing December 7 – 16. If you would like to participate in the usability study, please contact MaShana Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate a date and time that works best for you.
If you are not able to help out in person, you will still have an opportunity to participate by offering your comments towards the end of December. Additionally, throughout the coming year, we will solicit feedback from the NIH community in an effort to ensure that our ongoing website development is based on user input.
We look forward to having you take an active role in shaping the direction of the NIH Library website. Your participation is greatly appreciated.
