Your input wanted on library website

The UC Berkeley Library is trying to get a better understanding of how people use our website ( and we need your help!

We are looking for any current UC Berkeley students or faculty who would like to sit down with a Library staff member and show us how you use our site. Whether you use it every day, intermittently, or have never used it, we're interested in speaking with you.

In exchange for about an hour of your time, we'll give you a $10 gift certificate to the FSM Cafe in Moffitt Library.

We will record the session, but all recordings and data collected will only be used internally for website redesign purposes.

If you are interested in helping us, please email Matthew Prutsman:
