  • User Research: Data from normative investigations aimed at understanding current human behaviors, practices and needs in order to identify means and opportunities of improvement.
  • Product Research: Data from normative investigations aimed at understanding current tools and standards in order to identify needs for conformity, re-education and opportunities for adoption.
  • Evaluation Studies: Data from evaluative investigations aimed at monitoring progress toward meeting project goals.
  • Reference Materials: Published papers and similar materials produced externally that have direct application.
  • Archival Materials: Materials gathered in the course of individual investigations that are archived collectively for practical or legal purposes.
