Author(s): Hahn, James F.; Morales, Alaina
Subject(s): rapid prototyping Google Android phone Undergraduate libraries. mobile computing
Abstract: This research presents the results of a project that investigated how students use a library developed mobile app to locate books in the library. The study employed a methodology of formative evaluation so that the development of the mobile app would be informed by user preferences for next generation wayfinding systems. A key finding is the importance of gathering ongoing user feedback for designing useful and used mobile academic library applications. Elements and data points to include in future mobile interfaces are discussed.
