|Failure to appoint RA||Severe (5)||Very Low (1)||5||Ensure appointment is well publicised internally and externally; identify appointable candidates in person (City has many graduates with relevant experience); the Centre for HCI Design has several current part-time staff who are likely to be available|
|￼Failure to recruit participants||Bad (4)||￼Low (2)||8||Use established interaction laboratory user panel if required; give participants £15 compensation.|
|Data Loss||Bad (4)||Low (2)||8||Use Subversion server for continuous version control and backup on RAID server; Regular backup schedule to external storage.|
|Changing Software/Hardware Issue||Moderate (3)||High (4)||12||Ensure compliance with official APIs, avoid use of APIs under known threat of change or redundancy.|

Work Package 1 (WP1): User Research (3 weeks)
Investigate the user context, including mobile phone and library use. Gain provisional feedback on potential interaction designs.
Work Package 2: Prototyping (3 weeks)
Work Package 3: Development (7 weeks)
We anticipate that the primary technology form used will be a ‘Webapp’ as this both minimises development costs, and provides support for the use of the widest range of devices.
Work Package 4: Evaluation (4 weeks)
Work Package 5: Documentation and Dissemination (ongoing)
Aims and Objectives
The MoPED (Mobiles and Public Electronic Displays) grant is investigates how to integrate library users' mobile phones with large public electronic displays. Public displays provide high-visibility communication of a library's resources in situ, but traditionally lack any connection with other parts of the IT infrastructure, or with patrons' personal devices.
In MoPED, we are combining personal mobile devices with large displays as a way of promoting access to the library's resources both on- and off- site.
- One or more working prototype interfaces for connecting mobile phones to a public electronic display.
- The results of user study(ies) on the use of the prototype system(s).
- A strategy for the future exploitation of public displays for promoting the use of library resources.
