  22. 22. Personal information Age: 19 Profession: full time student Field: Design Home life: single, lives with parents Hobbies: hanging out with friends Personality: arrogant and ambitious Amelie the Undergrad “Do I need to know this to pass?” •  Inexperienced library user •  Only interested in what’s required •  Research is not a key part of the course Background Computer usage Library usage Key experiences Experience: high Primary uses: IM, email, web, Creative Suite Favourite sites: Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, Design Milk Hours online per week: 40 Works out of: library or home Devices: laptop & any device she can get her hands on How often (online): weekly How often (offline): few times a week For: study, meet friends Advanced features: rarely Reliance on library: high (few alternatives) Material: books Uses: catalogue Amelie uses design books in the library to get ideas for projects. She does not rely on the library’s journal collections, her emphasis is on books. She uses the online catalogue to get started but spends most of her time pulling books from the stacks and looking for images. As a design student her work is very project focused with little research required. Some of her projects are highly independent, others involve working in groups and building on ideas from her colleagues. Her studio work involves developing prototype designs by using Creative Suite software, constructing physical models, and sketching on paper. She relies on Getty Images and Flickr as good sources for digital images. She has found it difficult to search for images through the library.. She has tried to use the “ask a librarian” feature but sometimes she gets the feeling that there are not enough resources to handle all the requests so you have to wait for a reply. Amelie uses the library systems so infrequently that she doesn’t get used to them or build up tactics or strategies for success. Amelie needs help to use the library. If you don’t bring the book back on time you get an “outrageous fine, something like $30.” Zaana Howard 2012. Adapted from persona examples from Step Two Designs & Cornell University. Persona images courtesy of Flickr Creative Commons.

Create a focusing question 10 minutes to create a question Example: How might Chris, a culinary apprentice, find relevant and credible information on knife skills so that time researching and learning is minimised as she works full time and has a baby at home?
