Improving ALA Connect

Discussion Usability Testing for ALA Connect

by Tara Lannen-Stanton on Sat, Jul 11, 2009 at 01:55 pm

I am currently participating in the ALA Connect Usability testing at ALA annual. I am running through a usability scavenger hunt right now. My main complaint is that the type is very small and some of the buttons are very small as well. I like the tagging aspect but it would be nice to have tagging for the communities as there are a lot and they are hard to sort through alphabetically although the search function is nice.
