Abstract or Summary
  • Librarians at Oregon State University Libraries perceive that there is a disconnection between the organization of libraries’ information resources and the way our users search for information. Librarians are curious to learn how users of OSU Libraries web pages find information on specific subjects. For example, should the OSU Libraries provide a simpler means of access to “best sources” for subject research? Should the libraries present information that is filtered by discipline, subject area or course, and/or by the level of need, undergraduate through expert researcher? In spring 2005, librarians researched these and other questions. Research objectives included: · determining users’ preferences when using the OSU Libraries’ web pages; · determining whether users gravitate toward a subject-oriented presentation of library information; and, · learning whether users prefer to personalize their access to the Libraries, using a personalization tool such as “My Yahoo.” Our program will present findings from this research.
