In the spring of 2022, the MIT Libraries User Experience & Web Services (UXWS) team conducted exploratory research into the MIT community’s search and discovery processes across all tools (not just MIT Libraries tools). The goal was to produce user-focused data to support the creation of the Discovery Strategic Plan. This presentation will cover the methods used and key insights learned.
