Hi Ralph

Thanks. I've shared that with the student. My concern is more the library web page again. Searching for information resources ... Sorry I haven't specified, since the mailing list I posted to is a library mailing list :)

Kind regards

Subject: RE: Help Please

The general starting point is http://my.sun.ac.za (my.SUN). Then the user chooses the "postgraduate" persona. That should be the advice. The "postgraduate" persona owner is Dorothy Stevens at PGIO (CC'd) who controls what appears on my.SUN for postgraduates.

The Library should advise Dorothy how it wants to be represented in that space. Of course the idea would not be to replicate the detail on my.SUN that already appears in the Library's website, but my.SUN could be benificially used to get a postgrad to relevant, deeper places within the Library site quickly. To this end, my.SUN has a VERY powerful filter function (a sort of search) for the apps that are registered in it (try it).

Refer to: http://blogs.sun.ac.za/it/2014/01/30/what-is-the-my-sun-menu/.

Hope that helps somewhat.

I assisted the student in the end, but my concerns in terms of the web ....

-          Less is more. We try to provide too much info ...

-          Students don't know where to start - their primary need is to find reliable full text content easily, and they don't find the options available user-friendly. They want to know where to start to find content for their research. Focus should be on that. The main page should be far more simple - almost like Google

-          The web should be as such that researchers can help themselves ... without training or assistance ... it should be more intuitive ...

-          URL's should be much shorter
Kind regards
