ABSTRACT

This is an exploratory study targeting initial users to evaluate the usability of an aggregator-supplied full-text database and to analyze the differences in task performance and perceptions based on participant characteristics. The differences in completion time and perceptions on ease of use, terminology, subject categories and satisfaction were analyzed based on the participant characteristics such as Kolb learning style, gender and participation in user instruction on full-text databases. The results indicated that there was a statistically significant difference in completion time based on the Kolb learning style. Also a statistically significant difference was found in perceptions on ease of use and terminology based on gender. However no statistically significant difference was found in perceptions on the usability of the database based on the participation in user instruction.
