The School of Library and Information Science is looking for students to participate in a study that aims to improve user interfaces for searching and browsing library catalogs. This study examines how searchers interact with an online library catalog for exploratory search tasks, such as looking for books to help you research a paper. The study will take place on campus. Participants will spend around an hour and a half and will be paid $15 for their effort.
