Presentation Description

Academic librarians typically use information literacy standards to inform library instruction, but how can they use these standards when designing library web pages? Two reference librarians from Valdosta State University share their experiences on revising their tutorial and subject guide gateway, "Library Help," by using both usability and information ilteracy standards. We will also discuss the usability testing that led to this revision, how to put together a usability testing plan, and interesting ideas on how to both evaluate your web pages' usability and your users' needs.
