Please see the important announcement from RSO

We are almost at the point of finalizing our site map for our website. Can you help by completing this card sort?  We want to make sure our new website is usable for you.

Here is the link (if you need to copy and paste):


The card sort is an online exercise where you tell us which category our website information belongs in. It’s very easy and shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to complete.

We found through our research that some of the information on our website is buried so we are hoping to improve this through the card sort. You’ll also see in the cards some of the new information that was requested by both researchers and research administrators. We want to know where you would put that information.

Thanks again for participating and helping us improve our new site.  If you have any questions please feel free to email Sandra.Kinash@ualberta.ca.If you know other researchers or research administrators at the U of A who would like to participate in the card sort, feel free to send them the link to the card sort.
