EVALUATION OF A COMPUTER SUPPORT-BASED CROSS DISCIPLNE RESEARCH CONSORTIUM

Reghu Anguswamy, William B. Frakes

Abstract

This paper presents the results of a survey of users of services of a computer support-based cross discipline research consortium. Usage statistics of the consortium resources is also presented. An ishikawa diagram and analysis for improving the services is also provided. The major challenge of the consortium is improving the visibility of its services and resources. The majority of the respondents had not heard of the consortium, while some who did know of the consortium were not aware of what it can offer. Some respondents were also concerned that the resources were not specific to their area of interest. However, the majority (84%) of the respondents who had used the resources were satisfied.
