In 2002 the QUT Library participated in the University's WebAccess project. Client feedback, QUT's web accessibility evaluation guidelines, and the Raward Library Usability Index (LUI) were applied to testing the Library's high demand web based services as a case study. This paper reports on the methods, results and actions taken by the QUT Library to evaluate and improve accessibility to its core web services.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
