Abstract: This paper examines how the Library at the University of Leicester has been implementing the Sirsi Corporation’s new information management and presentation platform, Rooms, and why it decided that a usability study was essential to ensure Rooms’ success. It examines the reasons for undertaking a usability study and how it can be fitted into a wider evaluation programme including focus groups and online feedback. The practicalities of organising usability studies in an academic environment and the overall benefits of conducting such studies are also discussed.
