I conducted UX research to test the functionality and visuals of the MSU Library’s Bento Box Search Engine. The Bento Box search engine was in Beta at the time when my class became involved with the project. This project was completed as a group, with 3 students total in the group. After conducting surveys and Wayfinding studies on the search engine/Library website to improve usability.
We gathered and analyzed our data which we then formulated suggestions to improve the search engine, including adding an information button to each section of the search engine.
