        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.


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.

Best regards,

Bettina Speckmann, TU Eindhoven
Arianna Betti, University of Amsterdam
