Visualizing Better Discovery Layers

A session at LITA Forum

Sunday 15th November, 2015

9:00am to 9:45am (CST)

Numerous studies show that users of databases and online catalogs are overwhelmed by the number of results returned when searching. Other disciplines have had success with using visualizations to help people navigate large quantities of data. Can libraries learn from them and create visualizations that help our patrons better navigate our metadata? In this interactive session, you’ll hear about one library’s experiments with creating a visual interface for its discovery layer, and then we will collectively explore potential visualizations of library metadata that could help your library users find what they need more effectively.
