||Emily Daly and Bendte Fagge conducted usability testing of the default search functionality
(referred to as the “gear” in this report) and locating research guides on the Duke
Libraries website. The test was held outside of the Von der Heyden Pavilion on March
7, 2014 from 10:00 – 11:30am. A pilot was conducted with Steph Matthiesen (note that
Steph had not yet seen the gear icon). The test consisted of a short set of background
questions, four tasks, and four post-test questions that lasted approximately 5–10
minutes. See Appendix for test script.
