dc.description.abstractThis case study focuses on a usability test conducted by four librarians at Texas Tech University (TTU). Eight students were asked to complete a series of tasks using OneSearch, the TTU Libraries’ implementation of the Primo discovery tool. Based on the test, the team identified three major usability problems, as well as potential solutions. These problems typify the difficulties patrons face while using library search tools, but they have a variety of simple solutions.en_US
