Subject: Call for Participation: Evaluation of visual tools for librarians and humanities researchers The NWO-funded interdisciplinary research project "Visual Analytics for the World's Library Data" (https://www.win.tue.nl/CatVis/) is a collaborative effort between computer scientists (applied geometric algorithms and visualization), data scientists from OCLC (the company that operates Worldcat, the world's largest database with information on library collections), and philosophers with a strong interest in the methodological foundations of computational approaches and visualization research. The goal of this project is to provide visual tools and methods that allow librarians to manage and understand hundreds of millions of bibliographic records, and to develop visual tools and methods that aid philosophers and other humanities scholars in their research. To evaluate the effectiveness of visual tools developed in this project, we solicit participants for a short survey as well as a user study. The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete and will help us to optimally prepare our online user study, which will take place in early March 2019. Please follow the link below to start the survey. https://goo.gl/forms/0S2GV64ZIV3oEnO53 To help us reach as wide an audience as possible, please forward our message to any colleagues or mailing-lists you find appropriate. We realize that requests like ours put a strain on already very limited (research) time and we are sincerely thankful for any time you can invest. Your answers will benefit our project most if you can give them by Sunday, February 17, 2019. Please contact Michel Westenberg (M.A.Westenberg@tue.nl) for any (technical) questions.
