This post is just a collection of examples that relate to the visualisation of collections. It saves me sending a number of tweets back to two colleagues in the US who started a conversation about this over the weekend: @sjwilder100 (from UNC Charlotte Library) & @lorcanD (from OCLC).
When we started this program only last year, I was not really sure what it would "deliver" and nor was I keen on providing too much direction to the selected artists. Rather, I wanted to provide them some context about the Library, let them explore it and see what resulted with full artistic or creative freedom. I must say that I am more than happy with the progress so far.
This post includes the presentation that Josh Vawdrey (our IT Manager) and I gave at the recent THETA Conference in Hobart, Tasmania. It showcases our current and recent thinking, aspirations and work towards the addition of real discovery capabilities to our services and programs within the Library and via our online presence.
UPDATE: You can now search for articles directly from the main search box on the Library's homepage by using the dropdown list and selecting "scholarly articles and online resources".
