A presentation from Museums and the Web 2009
With the constant evolution of the Web, different browsing metaphors are expanding from navigation bars, drop-down menus, and sitemaps. More recent mechanisms such as tag-browsing, timelines, calendars, and the presentation of contextualised content are being offered to support general-purpose browsing. This paper addresses how these browsing alternatives can be used to fulfill the needs of the Canadian Centre for Architecture’s (CCA) on-line audience. The new CCA Web site is presented as an innovative case study for the replacement of a traditional navigation menu in favour of browsing tools supported by search and calendar functions, and shows how different Web browsing alternatives can best be used to support goal-oriented tasks.
