Collection Management System (CMS) / Metadata

One thought on “AtoM@DO: Findings from Usability Testing

  1. Hi there – thanks for sharing your findings on the implementation of AtoM, this is really interesting to me as we are in the process of implementing a collection management system too.

    I was interested in your comments that participants didn’t figure out how to use the context tree, because we are going to considerable effort to provide a context tree in our system. I have just been looking at your database via the links in the post, and found that even though I could recognise it as a context tree, it took me a while to figure out what (the little triangles) to click on to open the tree for browsing. I could just particularly thick but it might be that you just need a more intuitive and recognised symbol – maybe a file folder?

    All the best with your implementation.
