Lens, the University of Chicago Library's implementation of AquaBrowser, serves users from various disciplines. This study, conducted by the music cataloger, considers needs of music researchers. In particular, it captures user input on five facets formerly in Lens-Format, Topic, Genre, Geographical Region, and Time Period-as well as information on how users employ music uniform titles in their research. The data collected was analyzed and used to generate recommendations for improvement of Lens. A report detailing the findings and the corresponding recommendations was submitted to a library committee. Recommendations have been implemented or rejected, or are under consideration.
