METHODOLOGY OF THE STUDY IN LIBRARY SYSTEM
System Analysis and Design
There are considerable methodologies and theories in which to conduct a research for this topic.
The use of User Satisfaction Questionnaire as a method for the research is quantifiable and effective to come up with valid and reliable results. The purpose is to establish a baseline for user satisfaction. Selection of students will be identifying by age, course, frequency of use, gender, and other demographic elements.
The Session Activity Logging can be another method to use. Its purpose is to get an early comparative reading of user satisfaction with the library system and the system itself.
Moreover, the contextual inquiry is an approach to study technique combining observation and interview methods to gain an interpretation of work practice. While Laboratory-Based User Testing can be useful in examining representative or surrogate users as they work through set tasks in a controlled environment.
On the other hand, the use of Transaction Log Analysis as a research methodology emphasizes on evaluating system performance, rather than on user behavior and performance. This methodology is effective in the study of on-line catalogue systems, equal interest in how the system is used and in the searching behavior of end users.
