Seeking participants for library website usability study

The McGoogan Library of Medicine is seeking volunteers to participate in a study of the library website. The purpose of this study is to identify new ways for the library to develop and organize information on our website that will meet the needs of our users. UNMC students, staff, and faculty are invited to participate in this study. The study will take place in person at the library and will require approximately 30 minutes to complete. Each participant will receive a $10 gift card.   
If selected, we will contact you. For questions about this study, please contact Heather Brown (
