I am wondering if:
a) any institutions have implemented a search engine which allows users to
search within the text of a single finding aid.
b) if said institution would allow me to include one of their finding aids
in a usability study I will be coducting over the next month or so. The
basic gist of the study is to compare user interactions with different
finding aid presentations (EAD and non-EAD). I can supply more
information about the study to anyone who is interested.
Please reply off list if you prefer!
