I posted a message to the axslib listserv about two days ago,
encouraging its members to participate. I also asked for anyone deciding
to get involved to let the other members in forum know about it. So far,
there hasn't been a single response.

Ron, are you considering getting involved? This would be great!

Anyone involved in this effort?


Dear EBSS members,

On behalf of the ERIC team, we would like to once again extend an
invitation to participate in ERIC usability testing. As you may know,
our plans were originally announced at the ERIC Users Discussion Group
Meeting during the Boston ALA Meeting on 1/16/2005.

The Department of Education is encouraging EBSS members to get involved
in ERIC usability testing. As part of the Department's ongoing
commitment to soliciting user feedback, we will be conducting usability
tests on the ERIC Web site at periodic intervals in the coming year.

We're currently seeking ERIC users for sessions to be conducted in early
March. The locations and dates are as follows:

- Washington DC, March 3rd and 4th.
- Austin TX, March 9th and 10th.
- Remote usability testing - exact dates yet to be determined, however
likely to take place during week of March 14th.

We would also like to hear from ERIC users who may not be available in
March, but wish to participate in the future. The attached word
document provides more information about ERIC usability testing and our
plans. (See attached file: eric_usability_testing_update_2005.doc)

We hope EBSS members will get involved and provide feedback and
suggestions. Thanks in advance for your assistance. Looking forward to
your response.

Note: If you are interested in participating in March usability testing
please contact me by Friday, February 4th.

Best regards,
