Search, Browse, Link : a Pathfinder for exploring American Memory

640 views

Published on

Electronic pathfinder for navigating the American Memory website by the Library of Congress (2005 version), which relays on three simple principles for navigation: search, browse, link. Example of a next-generation library pathfinder, which exploits the networked environment. This pathfinder was part of a public library book display in 2005, and ran as a slideshow on a PC, functioning as the visual draw, the poster, the sign, the promotional moving image to draw patrons to the book display itself. Composed by a librarian (a 2004 graduate University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign).
