  1. Hacking User Experience in a Repository Service: ScholarSphere as a Case Study [Download]

    Title: Hacking User Experience in a Repository Service: ScholarSphere as a Case Study
    Depositor: Patricia M Hswe
    Creator:

    Description: This talk was resented at the 2014 Open Repositories Conference in Helsinki, Finland. User experience continues to be an under-explored area for repository services, even more than a decade into the production instances of many institutional repositories (IRs). Only a handful of articles, for example, are dedicated to usability, persona development, and end-user expectations in IRs. One reason for this gap is that libraries rarely have the resources, in terms of personnel, time, budgets, and tools, to commit toward user experience design and development. Another reason is the struggle that libraries have had in defining the services encompassed by IRs. Our paper proposes to help bridge this seeming chasm by reporting on efforts undertaken to develop and manage a user-driven repository service at Penn State. We will show that, even in the absence of resources, such as a user experience specialist, it is possible to “hack” user experience for a repository service, mainly by doing the following: prioritizing people and community building along with service development; leveraging such engagement by crafting use cases and user scenarios to inform the service; and being creative with the “seamless merging” of the key components of user experience, such as engineering, marketing, graphical and industrial design, and interface design.

  6. Spheres of Community Building: ScholarSphere and Sufia [Download]

    Title: Spheres of Community Building: ScholarSphere and Sufia
    Depositor: Patricia M Hswe
    Creator:
    • Hswe, Patricia
    Description: In fall 2012 Penn State released ScholarSphere, a repository service supporting self-deposit of research materials, for preservation and access. Shortly after ScholarSphere went into production, we launched work on Sufia with other Hydra community members. Sufia, the engine that powers ScholarSphere and provides its baseline functionality, facilitates sharing of the code base. Our poster, presented at the 2013 Digital Library Federation Forum, shows how community-based collaborations can propel an iterative design and development; enhance usability; and even lead to unexpected benefits (such as the creation of Sufia). The poster includes a technical architecture model; code contribution visualizations; screen captures of ScholarSphere; and usability testing script excerpts.

    Description: This presentation may be used to introduce the ScholarSphere repository service to students who wish to share and keep for the long term the scholarship they produced while at Penn State. The slides may be tailored for a session about developing an online professional presence, or about open access to "grey literature" - which is often how student-authored works are categorized.
