Usability test for British History Online
Jonathan Blaney, 16 August 2011
We would like to ask your help, as a registered user on British History Online, to find ways in which we can improve the website. If you could spare a few moments to take an online test about how well the current British History Online website works, we would be very grateful.
The survey is part of wider research that we are doing into reducing the impact of 'information overload' on the usefulness of the website to historical research and teaching. This will enable us to show better value for money to all our funding sources by leading to greater and more informed use of the site as a whole, strengthening its case for sustainability. Additionally, the results will contribute to a national policy for digital resource usability in Higher Education by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC), which supports information technology in Higher Education, so your input will be extremely valuable to us and more widely.
