This is a summary of the usability report of our DSpace based Institutional Repository made by a student from Universitat de Lleida for her master's dissertation.

At the time the usability study was done, our repository was set up with a customised JSPUI. As XMLUI is the interface were more development effort has seen recently and, therefore more polished, I decided to deliberatively omit problems found in JPSUI not applicable to XMLUI while writing this summary. Problems specific to our customisations are omitted too.


Fifteen participants were recruited, five from each group in the university: Research and Teaching Staff, students and Administrative Staff.
