|Objective||identify and discuss good and bad digital library user interfaces|
Identify one example of a well designed and one example of a poorly designed digital library interface. (Digital library is understood here very broadly. It could be an OPAC, a library website, an on-line index or database (e.g., EBSCO, SpringelLink), an on-line journal site, but not a general web search engine, such as Google or Bing). Use your intuition and your knowledge gained from this week's readings. In particular, please use Norman's design principles: visibility, feedback, consistency, constraints, affordances, and/or conceptual model to support your judgment. The selected digital libraries should be either publically available on the world wide web or available through Rutgers Library system.
