Here at Cambridge University, during Easter Term of last year, we explored the idea of enabling sub-lending between peers at three different site libraries selecting Facebook Groups as our platform. Although the project was unsuccessful in terms of the number of legitimised sub-lending transactions, the student diary studies and exit interviews undertaken proved very illuminating. Final report (PDF).

A reflective case study on the value of the WhoHas? project by the English Faculty Library’s Helen Murphy is one of the chapters in the forthcoming UX in Libraries book published by Ashgate next Spring.
