Discovery Research Project: Call for researchers & academic staff to participate

The University Library’s Discovery team is conducting a user research project aimed at understanding the needs, motivations and difficulties of people using our library systems and platforms, which include Discovery, the Library catalogue, LeanLibrary, and Minerva Access (Institutional Repository), to name a few.  

The project aims to identify improvements that we can make to the discovery and access of Library resources. 

We would like to interview researchers completing a PhD and Masters by thesis – as well as academic staff. 

The interview will be conducted via Zoom and will take approximately 30 mins. You will be asked questions about you and your research, which systems you use, and how you access them. 

If you are interested in participating in the study and would like more information, please contact Hannah Armitage, hannah.armitage@unimelb.edu.au Discovery UX Specialist, Student and Scholarly Services.
