Librarians can get a glimpse of the various digital library projects
through the international professional literature. Quite often these
projects focus on the implementation process of the project, but rarely
on the analysis of data about actual use of websites and digital
collections, or about user satisfaction analysis.
As a parallel session to the conference in Arco (Trento, Italy), the
Trentino-South Tyrol Regional Committee of the Italian Library
Association provides a space to all those subjects, individuals and / or
institutions, who have begun tot race down user behaviour and
satisfaction related to digital collection accessible via the Internet
or local databases. Other evidence based practices such as evaluation of
the user-interface-requirements, are welcomed.
Submissions and contributions may be accepted both in the form of
workshops and / or posters.
Workshop sessions will be particularly welcomed for contributions made
by little-medium sized institutions (e.g. public libraries, museums in
town of less than 100,000 inhabitants), either alone or in cooperation
with other subjects.
Topics of interest are following:
- Evaluation of digitization projects for collections of periodicals
- User behaviour and satisfaction of digital collections of periodicals
Other proposals can be accepted by the Organizers only if complying with
the general themes of the conference. Submissions by information
professionals, librarians, Italian and foreign institutions are welcomed.
