READ ME FIRST for HCIL prototype of User Interface for the LOC National
This is a PROTOTYPE (some would say a "chauffeured" prototype, which means
that it will be difficult to explore if you have never seen it). We recommend
that you first read the
CHI 97 design briefing we wrote, and look at the "Proto notes" who
can be selected from the top right of many screens.
But don't miss the BROWSE AND SELECT java!
It is not hooked-up to any real search engine (most searches are "canned/fake")
It is not meant as a design that will itself be fully implemented but
rather a means to explore different design problems and suggest design
techniques and widgets to the LC implementation team.
WE ARE NOT DONE YET... so not everything has been polished as we hoped
Soon to come:
We are now working on the Coolidge collection in more details, and should
be made available by the end of February.
