The History of the Accademia di San Luca, c.1590-1635: Documents from the Archivio di Stato di Roma (ASL) is an extensive online research database home to archival materials and documents of the Accademia di San Luca located in Rome, Italy, and is maintained by the National Gallery of Art.

The team conducting the study consists of four User Experience (UX) consultants, who conducted seven moderated user tests. The test participants, who possessed varying levels of knowledge regarding the Accademia di San Luca, were given a specific list of tasks to follow while navigating the website. Participants encountered usability issues related to navigation, search features, and the map tool throughout testing that impacted their interactions with the ASL website.
