Apologies for cross-listing...
I need some advice on user testing methods. I’ve embarked on a project to
redo our library website’s information architecture. I’ve sketched out a
new IA for the site which I want to test with users. Initially I thought
that I would just build out the new IA on our development server, then do
usability testing with users on the dev site. Now I’m realizing that will
be a lot of work, and making any changes once its built will also take
time. Is there a middle ground? Are there good ways to do some user
testing with paper prototypes? I want to get feedback on whether my
categories and labels are intuitive and meaningful.
