Evaluation of the Prototype for a Library and Information Science Collaboratory (English)
Abstract [en]

This study is a formative evaluation of a prototype collaboratory for sharing data collection instruments in library and information science (LIS). The aims were to find out: how the study participants, five hospital librarians, experienced the interaction with the prototype while working with predetermined tasks; and their views on the different functions of the prototype collaboratory. Methods used for data collection was as a survey; followed by a think-aloud session where the participant verbalised his/her thoughts during the interaction with the prototype; and finally a semistructured interview. The survey was analysed with a frequency distribution, while the data from the other methods were analysed qualitatively by extracting themes from the transcribed sessions. The results show that although the librarians expressed different problems while working with the interface, mainly related to the language in the prototype collaboratory and difficulties with the page for applying metadata, all of them were confident in being able to learn the system after using it for a while. The librarians had a positive attitude towards sharing data collection instruments as well as comments in the prototype collaboratory. At the same time, they were aware that students and researchers might have different abilities or incentives to work and share information. All of the librarians said that they might join a future collaboratory. Three out of five also said that an actual membership would depend on the present work needs or engagements for using the collaboratory. Finally, suggestions for the development of the collaboratory have been made.
