Abstract [en]

LIBRIS is a national library search engine offering information about 6 million books, articles, dissertations and other materials held by Swedish university libraries, research libraries and public libraries. In December 2007 a new version of LIBRIS was launched, developed with focus on usability, simplicity and accessibility. This thesis examines how the new LIBRIS is used, what is working well and what could be improved and also what the users think of LIBRIS. The following report is based partly on a study of usability and partly on a series of tests where librarians, scientists, students and developers have executed a number of tasks while thinking aloud. The users also participated in an interview. The results suggest that LIBRIS has some problems regarding user efficiency and ease of learning. Nevertheless the users find LIBRIS to be clear, simple and visually pleasing. Overall the users succeed in finding materials but they seem to have difficulties in assessing the availability of literature and with configuring certain parts of the system.
