  • A Session is where you and your team capture observations during a user research session. 


  • The project notes section is useful for recording the project objectives, client details, projected dates, participant numbers, project owners, and so on. Use this space for information that will contribute to consistency across your project, and be useful for anyone else who contributes to the same Reframer project.

Weather like this in Warrnambool today - a good day to spend in the comfort of the Library.

"Here are my favorite academic libraries of 2014. I expected this year’s sites to be:

Unified - I wanted a seamless, integrated research experience.  I looked for cross-platform search tools, integration with courses,  and built-in, non-siloed research guides.
Instructive - I wanted the site to teach me how to be a better researcher.  I looked for embedded information literacy instruction and point-of-need help features.
Accessible - I wanted the site to be accessible by anyone from any device."

  • a seamless, integrated research experience
  • teach me how to be a better researcher
  • accessible by anyone from any device
