I’ve been hard at work with a fellow classmate, Eric Gonzales, on our class project.
We’re trying to develop novel exploration techniques for increasingly digital libraries. As catalogs become more computerized and automated storage and retrieval systems replace the old shelving methods, library patrons may gain accessibility, but lose the opportunity to wander the collection and explore.
Our project builds on the concepts of monadic exploration to allow for individuals to wander to their hearts’ content, browsing the interconnections, all while never losing their place.
It’s far from done yet, but you can view our progress in the HCI Seminar gallery area of my portfolio.
