a useful script for gathering data about our patrons. possible questions include:

2) top 2 things you do on the website (have them choose from a list).
maybe run for a week (as a popup window) and a week as just a link in the sidebar of the current page.

The present study investigated whether there is a correlation between user performance and compliance with
screen-design guidelines found in the literature. Nine bibliographic display formats were scored using a checklist of eighty-six guidelines. Twenty-seven participants completed ninety search tasks using the displays in a simulated Web environment. None of the correlations indicated that user performance was statistically significantly faster with greater conformity
to guidelines. In some cases, user performance was actually significantly slower with greater conformity to guidelines. In a supplementary study, a different set of forty-three guidelines and the user performance data from the main study were used. Again, none of the correlations
indicated that user performance was statistically significantly faster with greater conformity to guidelines.
