Title:The Student/Library Collaborative: Senior Undergraduate Computer Science Course Projects at the University of Illinois Library
Author(s):Hahn, James F.
Subject(s):mobile app
library software
undergraduate research
Abstract:With funding from an Institute of Museum and Library Services demonstration grant, librarians of the Undergraduate Library at the University of Illinois partnered with senior computer science project courses in order to design and build student-centered mobile apps. The grant work called for demonstration of student collaboration strategies and computing workflows that would enable greater access to collections and awareness of services, while investigating aspects of location specific mobile digital services. This case study reports grant strategies and goals, app design choices sourced from rapid use studies, and student/librarian outputs at the end of the grant.
