“Search Interfaces for Plant Collections” and “Summing Up on Names, Biographies and Identities”
Search Interfaces for Plant Collections
This is a report on my master's project on Search Interfaces for Plant Collections. I will present results from UX design, user testing, and a low fidelity prototype. Full project report, poster, and presentation available here.
Summing Up on Names, Biographies and Identities
Over the past two semesters we have looked at many aspects of the use of names, biography and identies in archival description and discovery, large scale biographical databases, prosopography, editorial notes, and the construction and management of scholarly identity, among other scenarios. To conclude the semester, I'll try to summarize and generalize some of what we have discovered within a broad framework and outline some open questions that we might want to return to next semester.
