Feedback form is now closed.
This interactive presentation will introduce findings from a wayfinding study where ESOL students (English for speakers of other languages) were observed navigating physical and digital library spaces. We will present our multifaceted research strategy which combined think-aloud protocols, cognitive walkthroughs, and task-scenario testing with webscreen capture and video recordings from chest-mounted GoPro cameras. We will discuss our findings and provide an analysis of the social, digital, and spatial obstacles ESOL students encounter in academic libraries.
