Publications: Usability

Usability is another of my research interests. As a school technology specialist, I was often surprised by the actions of novices as they approached computer systems and software. Over the past two years, I've written several papers examining usability. One is included here.

Testing Library Websites for Usability [pdf] - This paper was prepared for a special focus issue of Knowledge Quest, a journal of the American Library Association. Dr. Baumbach was co-editing this issue of the journal and invited Cem Kaner and me to co-author this paper. Kaner is an expert on software testing. He provided the majority of the subject matter expertise for this project. As second author, I helped him understand the context of the school library and assisted him in finding links and resources mentioned throughout the paper. This is scheduled for publication in volume 33, number 3 of Knowledge Quest.
