From Records to Visuals: Visualizing Book Metadata
Evidently, visualizing books is a pivotal goal of the Visual Navigation Project. In the last weeks of December, we have created an initial infrastructure for enriched book data. The past weeks, we have explored ways to visualize book records of the University of Oslo Library.
The metadata of books in library collections provides myriad possibilities for visualization and visual navigation. To this end, we enriched catalog metadata with cover images, textual descriptions and reviews of books, and experimented with visualizing these book records.
