Executive Summary

The University of Florida Digital Collections (UFDC) is a research tool that enables a user to
find resources held at the University of Florida (UF), learn about the physical collection it is held
in, and use the online full content of the resource. The University of Florida Digital Library
Center (DLC) developed this digital library to house the digital resources (e.g. monographs and
serials, maps and other images) and provide open access to remote and local users.

The UFDC offers at least forty collections grouped into several major headings as a top-level
(i.e. on the homepage) or lower-level collection. The headings used include: Arts, Humanities
and Social Sciences; Science and Technology; Maps; Florida; World; and University of Florida
and Endowed Collections. In addition, the UFDC links to external collections that the DLC has
assisted in digitizing.

Since the UFDC's full launch in April 2007, the UFDC has undergone significant development
in functionality and design. At the start of development, the UFDC programmer in collaboration
with the public services liaison to the Digital Library Center/Systems Group identified desired
functionality as seen in similar resources and considered participant preferences based on
experience with user behavior in class instruction and reference desk transactions.

Collections that represent much of the functionality desired to test were selected for three
separate usability assessments. The evaluations on individual collections, such as the Baldwin
Library of Historical Children's Literature, Florida Digital Newspaper Library and Digital
Library of the Caribbean, resulted in recommendations that would impact the overall
functionality of UFDC within limits of the technical capability of the open source Greenstone
Digital Library System currently used for its metadata storage, retrieval, and search engine. The
continuing development of UFDC has occurred as part of the iterative assessment of the
resource.

At present, additional functionality including downloading of files from UFDC and map
searching were to be evaluated. Along with this functional testing, the Interim Head asked that
the public interface of UFDC be considered; this interface has not significantly changed since
2007.

To accomplish these tasks, an Assessment Team developed and administered usability testing to
a group of university participants. The testing examined how well the UFDC allows for ease of
use, navigability and learnability. In addition, the testing captured the participant reactions to
general intuitiveness. Key areas of concern were identified prior to testing:

Is the main UFDC homepage intuitive
Is the current subject default view for the homepage preferred
Are the additional functionalities (e.g. map searching) and default views intuitive


The testing resulted in feedback with in the following overall findings:









In searching, participants often rely on the basic search box without consideration of
collections

The following report will provide a summary of findings, including:

User difficulties and frustrations with the resource
Significant usability findings (may include positive as well as negative findings) and
recommendations


Methodology

Prior to testing, the Assessment Team members reviewed and considered the need to submit a
University of Florida Institutional Review Board Protocol (IRB). After submitting the
documentation and the survey instruments, the IRB Office indicated that the protocol was
exempted.

What happened during the usability test

The evaluation of the UFDC was conducted at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida.
The research methodology involved resource testing to evaluate online participant search
behavior and card sorting to organize collections on the homepage. Of the fifteen participants in
total, six were given scenario-based test questions while nine were asked to organize collections.
Scenario-based testing participants completed a test session consisting of structured exercises
using the UFDC search interfaces; result pages and item viewer. During the individual test
sessions, participants spoke out loud about their process to complete each question and what they
expected would happen; responses were written down by the librarian.

Card sorting participants completed a test session consisting of organization of index cards with
UFDC collection names and descriptions. Once they sorted all cards, they were asked to provide
categories, headings or other ways to identify the piles of cards (e.g. cards could be
hierarchically arranged or sorted by subject/geography/etc.).

All participants of the usability testing completed the same pre-assessment questionnaires to
determine experience using online library resources. Post-test questionnaires that were used
assessed participant satisfaction with using the resource.

Each participant was asked to compare homepage views and indicate which structure was
preferred.

Who we tested
The individual usability testing took place between July 8 and July 20, 2009.

The fifteen participants of the usability testing were recruited prior to testing. Participants were
selected from four categories of users who represented the campus community.









Faculty participants were recruited by email to personal contacts of subject specialists in the
Liberal Arts and Sciences and Education. University staff members, graduate and undergraduate
participants were frequent library users who responded to an open invitation by assessment team
members. The participants reported the following profile characteristics:

Where we tested

In most cases, individual testing and observation was conducted at the University of Florida,
Library West or in the faculty member's office. The following is a general summary of the
participants' computing environment:


URL of tested website: [http://www.uflb.ufl.edu/ufdc
Computer platforms: [Dell Pentium IV with an 17" display]
Browser tested: [Mozilla Firefox]
Screen resolution: [1024 X 768]
Operating system: [Windows XP]
Connection speed: [Shared Tl]


What data we collected

The assessment team members collected data that would address the major elements of the
UFDC including homepage design; navigation and ease of use; searching features; result pages;
and the item viewer.


Scenario-Based Testing


Initial Resource Impressions

At the beginning of each individual scenario-based test session, we allowed the participants to
preview the resource. We asked participants the following four questions:


What are your initial impressions of this resource?
What did you like about this resource?
What did you dislike about this resource?
What type of information would you expect to find on this site?


The respondents indicated that their general impression had is that it is a graphically attractive,
well organized resource. After a short perusal, most participants indicated that they thought that
the interface and search features were easy to use. However, the majority of participants only
spent a short time scanning and exploring to find out what it contains.

The overall assumption regarding content is that the database would cover older, historical
resources, including university-owned and developed publications.

What are your initial impressions of this resource?
Easy to use
Has a simple interface









Impressive-holds digitized books
Confusing-uncertain about content

What did you like about this resource?
Attractive layout
Collections appear to be broken down into specific fields
Design on homepage is not cluttered
Ability to search more than just the bibliographic information (as with the catalog)

What did you dislike about this resource?
Collections are not self-explanatory; lots of collection names without information about
why it's important or what is available
The search results retrieved too slowly
No mouse hover option to show any collection information
No search history feature
Inability to save results or searches conducted
Home navigation is not obvious

What type of information would you expect to find on this site?
Common answers included:
Older papers held by the University
e-Books
Archived materials
Pictures and maps
Videos
Conference papers in science collections
Resources in .pdf or .doc formats

Tasks and Test Review

During the usability evaluation, six participants were asked to complete a number of tasks using
the resource. The questions were presented in order on index cards. The following questions
were asked of all participants to ensure they explored most features of the resource. The issues
are addressed in this section and again in the Findings and Recommendations section of this
document.

Question Function/Feature Tested
1 How can publishers provide additional content to the Collection Homepage
Florida Digital Newspaper Library? Navigation

2 Find the 2007-2008 Budget Information report published Collection Search and
by the UF Office of the Provost. Can you download the Download
report?
3 How many maps are available that cover the African Map Search Tab in Map and
countries south of the equator? Imagery Collections









4 In the UFIR find all materials that deal with citrus. What UFIR Result Page
is the oldest item?

5 On what page does Section C (Sports) of the January 24, Newspaper Section Search
2007 Santa Rosa Press Gazette start?

Overall Navigation and Ease of Use/Intuitiveness
Participants were generally successful in navigating through the database's search interfaces,
result pages and item viewer. Most commented that the interface was generally easy to use.
However, one participant did indicate that returning to the UFDC homepage was not intuitive;
the University of Florida Digital Collections link in the upper right corner went unnoticed.

Collection Homepage Tools
By asking the question, how can publishers provide additional content to a collection, the
Assessment Team hoped to gauge the intuitiveness of a collection homepage. Each collection has
a Home tab, various search tabs, All and New items tabs, as well as an About tab. Although the
text on the homepage for FDNL is descriptive and text intensive, most participants thought that
the information desired should be found on the page. Of the six participants of this testing, four
thought that the Florida Electronic Library link would give them the answer. Only one
participants were able to successfully use the About tab to locate the answer; the other patron
tried an Advanced search and contact us link to seek publishing/contributing information.

Item Searching
Participants were asked to search for a specific item which is published annually: Find the 2007-
2008 Budget Information report published by the UF Office of the Provost. Because the
collection was not identified in the question, five of six participants searched by a combination of
the key terms "provost" "budget" "information" and report" to seek the requested information.
Only one patron thought to seek a particular collection that would be of relevance to the
question-Institutional Repository at University of Florida. The words "University of Florida"
in the collection title lead the participant to searching within the collection.

Some participants were able to use the listed volumes to locate specific 2007-2008 item
requested.

Download This PDF
Once a participant located a publication, the newly implemented download feature was tested.
Being able to download PDF files is only available for some items in some collections; the
hyperlink for the feature is nested in the PDF viewer tab. Although not all collections and not all
items within collections provide this capability, this question sought to see how intuitive it would
be for a user to locate it. Since the Page Image view is the default, the PDF download is hidden.
All users could find the PDF download but only one participant could find it on first try; other
participants clicked through one or more of the other five available tabs to locate the correct one.









Map Searching
When participants were asked to locate the number of maps available covering the African
countries south of the equator, the Assessment Team members navigated participants to the
correct collection. Two participants could not answer the question because the collection search
was down.

On the collection homepage, the default Home tab shows a basic search box. One participant
used it in an attempt to locate the number of maps below the equator. Conducting a Basic Search
of "Africa" he did not locate the correct number and then tried to use the metadata for an item
located, clicking on the Citation tab. Once the participant realized that it would not give any
additional clues he moved on to the next question.

The Africana Map-Map Search was used by three participants who answered this question.
Three participants took several tries but were able to find and select the desired area. Clicking
on the "Select Area" button at the top of the map is the initial step required to successfully use
the Map Search. Once that step was taken, selecting the appropriate area and locating the
number of maps was mastered by three participants.

Result List/Sorting
Once participants located list of results, Assessment Team members tried to determine if the
sorting feature worked intuitively. With the question "What is the oldest item dealing with citrus
in the UFIR?" all participants went to the appropriate digital collection and did a basic search of
term "citrus." At least one participant clicked on the Include Full Text box. Upon seeing the
results, all participants could use the Sort By dropdown--Date Ascending to answer the
question.

Newspaper Section Search
To determine how intuitive newspaper searching is within UFDC, Assessment Team members
asked participants to find the page number for the first page of Section C (Sports) for a particular
newspaper date. Although at least one participant could not tell what type of resource the
Gazette was, most participants immediately went to the Florida Digital Newspaper Library.

With Full Citation as the current default search criteria, when participants did a search of the
newspaper they were able to locate the newspaper title right away. Using the collapsible date
feature, three participants were able to locate the 2007 issues of the newspaper. Three
participants did not find 2007 issues-an errant issue with the search interface at that time-so
they did not complete the question. Once viewing the newspaper one participant expressed
excitement that the full image was available. He also perused the other views noting that the
zoomable and thumbnail views were helpful, but that the page image was unclear.

Post Test Reactions

At the end of each session, we asked participants to complete a post-test questionnaire. The
questions were useful in gauging how easy the resource was to learn and to use. Not all
questions were answered by participants.










When asked if the resource easy or difficult to navigate the following responses were given:
1. Without an officially designated Home button (participant did not notice the UFDC
Home button in the upper left) returning to the UFDC homepage was difficult; he
used the back button between most questions. In addition a participant indicated that
the search box for each collection made sense. However, because the collection name
was not located in the gray search area but instead was above the search area as a
logo, he thought it was a bit confusing. Further, if several collections should be
searched at one time, he thought the Advanced search on the UFDC homepage should
give all collection names.
2. Relatively easy.
3. Not easy or particularly difficult; site is good for those with patience, or those willing
to spend a lot of time "playing around with it."
4. Easy to navigate
5. Not very good
6. Did not immediately know what tabs mean--tabs are too small and would be helpful
for navigation

What was the most difficult or confusing thing you encountered while using the resource?
1. Newspaper result pages easy to move around. [Date field needed?]
Brief view should be the default, rather than Icon view. Should I search from the 1st
page or within a collection to find what I need?
2. All collections should be under brief view; Tree view is dull.
3. A lot to take in for an inexperienced user, not the epitome of intuitive should define
differences in search criteria
4. Understanding terms used. Foreigners may find it difficult to search
5. Hyperlink text is too small in some places
6. The tabs for easier searching

What could be changed to make the search interface more user friendly?
1. Having a link for dates (date range) on main page.
2. Something to explain the uses of each tab (perhaps a mouse-activated info box would
help). Did not immediately understand purpose of FDNL subcollection "Historic
News Accounts of Florida", thought it should read "News ARTICLES"; hardly
noticed "subcollections tab". Newspapers should show dates in a more readable
fashion
3. Add search history
4. Basic search seems unlikely to retrieve needed results; advanced search preferable

What could be changed to make the result pages more user friendly?
1. Immediately put in date order. Old to New or New to Old.
2. JP2 image navigation arrows, because of their gray color, look nonfunctional;
Viewable area boxes not intuitive
3. Not much-results retrieved as expected
4. Explain what "Include full text?" mean









Were the materials contained in the database what you expected based on your prior knowledge
of the resource?
1. Newspaper impressed not expecting it. Liked zoomable.
2. Tree View = self-explanatory; Icon view = most attractive and most useful; Brief
view = ambivalent; BROWSING very important, as opposed to querying; "Africana
Collections": "Africana" vague, even to an Africanist
3. No prior experience with it but assumed papers and articles from science conferences
or newspapers

What do you like or dislike about the current default view of the map results in FDNL? Please
indicate which of the Result views (brief, table, thumbnail, full or map) provided is most
intuitive? (Appendix A, FDNL Result Views, Scenario-Based Questions (6))

1. Love brief view. Content. Like icons. Children's lib. got character!
2. "I liked the Google Maps one..." Disliked Table View, but liked Brief and Map view
3. Liked the title with detailed information with pictures-though would like to see
more detail about the item.
4. Table view most intuitive because it gives a clear list of items retrieved.
5. Brief view more intuitive.

What do you like or dislike about the current default view of the map results in the Map and
Imagery Collections? Please indicate which of the Result views (brief, table, thumbnail, full or
map) provided is most intuitive?

1. In Maps, the ability to expand the selection area when a segment is already selected
would be useful; sometimes a user may want to move or increase area but in this
current iteration of the feature, a user must start over.
2. Liked Full View likes 'the pretty'. "Map view would work intuitively.. .I liked the
Google-esque nature."
3. Liked that the title was shown with detailed information. Brief view is most intuitive.
4. Brief view more intuitive.

Participants were also asked to provide any additional information or comments not addressed in
the post-test sessions. Some comments include:
1. Averse to too much clicking, prefers scrolling.
2. Liked brief view for map results
3. Thought a tree view in each collection (listing all associated subcollections) would be
helpful.
4. Reiterated desirability of easy, intuitive browsing.

The major findings of the test sessions and focus group are indicated in the Findings and
Recommendation section of this report.










Findings & Recommendations

These findings and recommendations provide information from the testing and pre-/ post-test
questionnaires. While participants thought it was overall easy to understand and user-friendly,
the site requires some modification to increase ease of use. The following are specific issues and
recommendations.


Finding [#11: Navigation tools need improvement.


* Participants sometimes did not have the
means to easily recall what collection they
are in once in item viewer
* Navigation back to the main UFDC
homepage was not always accomplished
by clicking on the UFDC Home link in
the upper right hand corner
* Use of some colors make navigation tools
appear nonfunctional
* The thumbnail in Zoomable tab can be
difficult to use
* All collections should be under brief
view; Tree view is dull.


* Create a breadcrumb system to the
collection pages, including result pages.
* Advanced search on the UFDC homepage
should give all collection names.
* Change the color of the JP2 image
navigation arrows
* Provide short description or instruction
for how to use the thumbnail or increase
the font size of the line "Click on
Thumbnail to Recenter Image"


Finding [#2]: Map View should include more visible instructions.
Comments/Supporting Evidence Recommendations

* Participants using the Map Search may Increase the size of the instructions to call
not notice the instructional text above the attention to the directions

Card Sorting Exercise


Tasks and Test Review

Card sorting is an exercise to determine a hierarchy of elements. On a web page with a given
number of links, the hierarchies would correlate with groupings of links, thus providing a possible
navigational vector to the contents of the web page or web site.

To determine how a typical user of the UFDC collections might expect to see the collections
organized within a web site, we decided to use an open-card sort. In an open-card sort,
participants are asked to sort a stack of cards and give each stack a label. No predetermined group
names are provided to the participants. Participants are required to create their own group
headings. Participants may create as few or as many groupings as the feel necessary.










Nine participants completed the card sorting exercise for the UFDC collections. They placed
collections into groups of their own devise. Each participant (UF staff, undergraduate students,
graduate students, and faculty) was given a stack of cards, each with a name and a short
description of a single collection. The participants were then asked to sort the cards into groups
and give each group a relevant label.

Findings & Recommendations

Groupings. The sheer number of collections (45) and the wide diversity of subject matter covered
by the digital collections provided a difficult task at limiting the number of groups. Some
participants resorted to creating hierarchies that included sub-groupings under larger headings.
Others had trouble placing a particular collection into any group.

The number of groups, including subgroups, ranged from six to 17. When the subgroups were
flattened, the number of main groups ranged from three to ten. The groupings by each participant
are included at the end of this report (Appendix D, Individual Sorts and Groupings).

While this disparity in grouping may seem problematic, the headings provided by the participants
provide an insight into terminology familiar to the UFDC's users. There was also a general
consensus on a few headings such as Florida, The Arts, Literature, History, Maps, and Science
(including similar derivations).

Hierarchical Clustering. The actual groupings of collection names were submitted to single-link,
complete-link, and average-link cluster analysis. The resultant dendrograms, or cluster tree
diagrams, with a sample closeness of 0.550 are attached to this report.

The sample closeness of 0.550 produces the following number of groups:

Single-link: 6 groups
Complete-link: 12 groups
Average-link: 8 groups

Changing closeness can produce a different number of groups. For instance, changing the
closeness to 0.400 produces:

Single-link: 9 groups
Complete-link: 19 groups
Average-link: 15 groups

To try different distances, place a straightedge vertically along the bottom rule of the diagram.
The number of lines (or branches) the straightedge cuts is the number of groups for that closeness.
Follow a branch, and any child branches, to the left to determine which collections belong to the
group. The three charts below provide the possibilities for homepage groupings. The Assessment
Team does not recommend one particular grouping.

Post Sort Questions I



After the card sorting exercise, participants were asked a series of questions about their experience
with card sorting. Not every participant chose to answer the questions.


1. In general, what was the most difficult or confusing thing about arranging these items?
2. Which collection would you expect to find the University of Florida Science Archives
Photograph Collection?
3. Which of the Result Views (brief, table, thumbnail, full or map) shown is the most intuitive?


Overall, a common issue that participants faced was sorting the number of Florida collections and
finding collections that could fall into multiple categories.










Each participant was also asked he following additional question comparing current UFDC
views with two possible views based on the Duke University Digital Collections (Appendix C,
Homepage Views-Card Sorting Questions).

What do you like or dislike about the current default view of the UFDC homepage?
What are the problems of the homepage view and arrangement of collections?
Please indicate which of the four views (Icon, Brief, Collection 1 or Collection 2) you like
best.

Below are the participant responses:

In general, what was the most difficult or confusing thing about arranging these items?

1. It was hard. Some titles were obvious about where to categorize them and others were
difficult to categorize.
2. It was hard. Some titles were obvious about where to categorize them and others were
difficult to categorize.
3. Most frustrated by deciding which category in which to include certain cards when she
thought they could go under multiple categories. Also, she had trouble placing the
Theology Collection card because she didn't feel like it belonged in any of the categories.
4. Confused about what some of the collections contain and felt that some of collections could
have fallen under multiple categories.
5. Most confusing part of the exercise was deciding upon a way to categorize the cards. He
thought that he could either make many categories with only a few collections or just a few
categories with lots of collections, but would have liked to figure out something in
between, a mid-number of categories with a mid-number of collections.
6. Most difficult was finding a common theme, the # of Florida collections make dividing
harder.
7. Didn't know where to place the HSCL card.

Which collection would you expect to find the University of Florida Science Archives
Photograph Collection?

1. University of Florida Collections
2. University of Florida Collection
3. Should be found in a UF sub collection within a larger photograph collection.
4. A UF sub collection
5. The Florida Photographs Collection, which he had categorized as part of a broader Florida
Studies category.
6. Under the Florida collections.
7. Florida.

Which of the Result Views (brief, table, thumbnail, full or map) shown is the most intuitive?

1. Brief, it provided more information and was easier to understand. The data provided was









just enough to explain the items shown.
2. Brief
3. Liked the brief view the best because of all the information available as well as the
thumbnail, but would add a link to a map that demonstrates the location of the publication.
4. She liked the brief view, noting that it had more information and offered several results on
one screen.
5. Liked the list and thumbnail views and did not like the full view. His thoughts on the brief
view and map view were neutral. Upon a second look, he added the brief view to those he
liked. When asked to pick just one, he chose the thumbnail view, citing the visual appeal
of the pages and the number of results visible in the display area.
6. Brief view should be first.
7. Likes maps
Geographically oriented
Mentioned this might not be typical of all users
Load time may be issue
Thinks that "Brief View" is a nice alternative
Doesn't like table view- like looking at a phone book
Thumbnail is too hard to read

Homepage Assessment

Because one of the goals for testing was to evaluate the homepage, a series of questions were
asked regarding the current default view and other possible views. When asked to discuss the
current homepage view, the following comments were provided:

1. Did not like that the categories were broad and would like to see a short explanation of the
collections.
2. Images for each collection and categories are made clear.
3. Liked the separation of the world collections under their own heading.
4. Really liked the category groupings but would have liked more information, like lists of
sub collections under each heading.
5. Didn't have any negative things to say about the current default view of the homepage or
the arrangement of collections;. he liked the way that the page looked and felt that it was
navigable.
6. Hates that there are no descriptions. He needs descriptions to understand what some of the
collections are and why they might be useful. (i.e. "ephemeral cities" is not self-
explanatory)
7. Too many icons
All map collections could be one icon
"ephemeral cities" is a confusing name
Florida should be on top since it is the strong pt of collections
Use the terminology "Area Studies" instead of "world studies".

In addition, participants reflected that some of the problems of the homepage view and
arrangement of collections included:









1. Collections could go under multiple categories on homepage.
2. Found the tabs (Icon, Brief and Tree) under the search section to be confusing. Collections
could go under multiple categories on homepage.
3. She thought that some of the collection names were confusing or misleading, citing the
History and Heritage Collection specifically. She thought that it should either be moved to
the world collections heading (citing that all countries have history and heritage) or the
heading itself should be reworded to clarify whose history and heritage is included in the
collection. She also noted that the oral history collections should not be listed under
Florida Collections because the information isn't exclusive to Florida.
4. She liked that the brief view had more information, but thought that the default view was
more aesthetically pleasing, mentioning that the brief view seemed to have too much text
for a homepage.
5. The participant noticed that the arrangement of collections on the homepage was generally
similar to his categorization of the collections.
6. A lot of the collections could be in multiple categories and may need to be cross linked (i.e.
"Aerial Photographs" could be maps or florida).
Maybe collections should be in alphabetical order so they would be easier to browse.
Loves the icons
Suggested a dropdown menu
Thinks top of homepage should be clear that you are searching all collections
Wants an icon that represents all of UFDC that looks like the collection icons.

Participants were asked to indicate which of the four views (Icon, Brief, Collection 1 or
Collection 2) you like best (Appendix C, Homepage Views-Card Sorting Questions).

1. Appreciated the "What am I searching" section of the Collections 2 view. Found the A-Z
List of Digital Collections option helpful from Collections 1 view. Confused by Tree view.
Liked the Brief view best but thought it would be better to narrow down text provided.
Also liked seeing the sub-collection headings but is wary that multiple collections could go
under different headings.
2. Brief, likes being able to see sub-collections under headings for categories. Also finds the
descriptions helpful.
3. Liked the Icon View and Collections 2 View best for their simplicity.
4. She thought that the collections 2 view was nicely minimal, but would have liked the
option to expand each heading.
5. Likes the language used in "Collection View 2" search box.
6. Likes Collection 2 view
simple, doesn't want to read too much text
prefers fewer categories
KEEP IT SIMPLE!
7. Prefer the icon view, not collection view (too broad). However, the Collections 2 view is
too broad could cross.
8. Icon view is visually appealing. While the tree view is familiar, the hierarchy of the
collections is not intuitive.
9. Prefers Collections View II
