We are redesigning Archives.gov to make it easier and quicker for you to find the information you need as part of NARA’s Flagship Open Government Initiative. We want your opinions to help us to develop a web site designed for participation. Throughout the redesign process, we’ll be inviting you to participate by voting, sorting, commenting, etc.
The first redesign activity starts with online card sorts. Card sorting helps determine what labels and categories to use and also helps build the structure of a web site to make it easier to find information. At the end of the card sort process, we hope to have a comprehensive understanding of how our customers would organize the content on Archives.gov.
Feel free to show us how you would organize our web site by participating in any or all of these online card sorts. It’s easy to do! We will give you an online list of Archives.gov web site topics written on virtual cards that you can move into meaningful groupings and then label each group. It takes about 15-30 minutes to do a card sort.
The card sorts are available April 12-16, 2010. To participate in one or more card sorts, please visit any of the following links and follow the brief instructions. All results are confidential.
You’re welcome to do one or all of them (which would be much appreciated!).
If you have questions or would like more information about our redesign, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your participation!
