The UC Berkeley Library is launching a new website and wants your thoughts!
We are looking for undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and lecturers to sit down with us for 30 minutes of user testing at Doe Library. Volunteers get a $15 gift card to FSM Cafe in return for their time. If you are interested and are available between January 21 - January 31, please contact Lisa Ngo at lngo[at]berkeley.edu.
