There is an exciting, new project afoot, and I am looking for some friends and neighbors in the Long Beach/Orange County, California, area to join me in helping a company that is building a huge, new web site. Your participation could make a difference in the customer experience including the look and feel of this new web site as well as the business plans of this huge new online service.
iArchives, Inc., a company located in Lindon, Utah, plans to launch a new web site, Footnote.com, later this year. This site will host millions of rich, original source documents that have never before been available online. In some cases, the documents have not even been available on microfilm or any format other than the original paper.
The Footnote.com team is looking for individuals living in the Long Beach/Orange County, California area who are willing to volunteer an hour of their time to evaluate iArchives' new website and provide candid feedback about the content of the site, its ease of use, pricing, and so forth. The site will be a history site, but many genealogists will find the original records interesting as well.
The site designers are seeking history researchers for this survey. Seven representatives from iArchives will join me in the Long Beach/Orange County CA area November 7-9, and would enjoy the opportunity of visiting with you in your home. Meeting in your home helps create an environment that is closer to how you would normally interact with this site. The Footnote.com team and I are hoping to schedule visits in the morning (9:00), early afternoon (1:00), or late afternoon (4:00).
If you are a history or genealogy researcher living in the greater Long Beach/Orange County CA area, and are interested in volunteering to help Footnote.com with this customer research, please let me know so I can help arrange the visit. You can contact me at email@example.com or call me at 508-471-3890. If you would rather contact iArchives directly, you can call Roger Bell at iArchives, 801-224-4015 extension 232, or send him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are able to volunteer, it's certainly an opportunity for you to make a difference.
I'll be joining the Footnote.com research team in California and hope to meet you then.
