Evaluation Plan

The Cheshire II project is placing public-access workstations in an actual library environment to evaluate the use and acceptance of the system, its search capabilities and interface features, by local library patrons and remote network users. The environment for this evaluation is the UC Berkeley Astronomy-Mathematics-Statistics Library which is a medium-scale academic branch library, circa 75,000 volumes, (although the system will also be made available to the national mathematics research community via network access). Use and acceptance of the system and its features will be evaluated using transaction monitoring and questionnaires. These methods are discussed the following section.
