In Search of the Key to a Well-Used Research Information System: Use Design Challenges for a Research Library.
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 2016

In this presentation we describe the development of a Current Research Information System (CRIS). The service is named and is developed by a cross-functional team at the Chalmers University of Technology Library. The team has utilized different user experience (UX) methods to meet user needs and support user behavior. Due to the fact that the data within the CRIS system is maintained and updated by its users, i.e., researchers, this has been a crucial approach. One challenge remains though - how to design the use of the system after the launch. Without constant updated data the system would likely become less and less relevant to its intended users. This is an urgent design challenge.
