“User Experience with the High Performance Internet Infrastructure” is a collaborative effort of the National Library of Medicine with the University Corporation for Advanced Internet Development/Internet2 to better understand the use of the high performance Internet in the Health Care/Health Science community. The results of the pilot study will be used to: 1) inform the developers and the supporters of the infrastructure on the technological needs and challenges faced by the biomedical research and health care communities and 2) encourage these communities to capitalize on the effective uses of the high performance Internet, particularly among non-users. The pilot study currently is half way through a one-year life cycle. This session will inform the audience of the process of the pilot study and some observations so far.
