Staff Usability Testing

Last week we tested 4 shelvers and they had some very useful observations for the website. As a result, we made a few changes to the new web:

  • Renamed "eBooks & More" to "eBooks, eAudios, and eVideos".

  • Renamed "News and Media" to "Press Kit".

  • Renamed "Programs" to "Programs/Events" on the main navbar.

  • Added a "Did You Know?" section to About the Library.

I also learned that it's a bad idea to remove an entire block div from the tpl.php files. It's better to just remove the content div instead:


Overall, the Staff Usability Test was a success. We plan to test patrons in late March. I need to get content on the website before then.
