York Digital Library Survey & Focus Groups

Have you ever searched online for University of York resources? If you have, it’s likely that you’ve used the University of York Digital Library (YODL). Named YODL for short, this where past exam papers are stored, as well as a huge number of History of Art images and other resources.

The library is currently looking for feedback from students and staff on YODL, so if you’ve ever used it, we’d love to hear your opinions via our short questionnaire; the link is on the front page of the site.  If you haven’t used YODL before, perhaps you would be interested in taking a look around the site at http://dlib.york.ac.uk/ before completing the questionnaire. All responses will be anonymous, but if you do want to leave an email address, you’ll be entered into a prize draw to win a £25 Amazon voucher.

We are also looking for participants for a focus group to give us more detailed feedback on the site; participants will be paid £10 for approximately 30 – 60 minutes of your time. Again, no previous experience of the site is needed; just have a look around to form some opinions before taking part. Even if you think you don’t have much to say, we want to hear it!

There are two focus groups, one for staff and one for students:

The staff focus group will take place this Thursday, 28th June at 4pm in LFA/205 (top floor of the Harry Fairhurst Building).

The student focus group will take place on Wednesday 4th July at 11.30am in LFA/205 (top floor of the Harry Fairhurst Building).

Please email mgedwards1@sheffield.ac.uk if you’d be interested in taking part.
