Touch tables can be a highly valuable addition to academic libraries, for instance to visualize a library's collection. In the Visual Navigation Project, we explored the needs and possibilities associated with touch tables. To discuss ideas with respect to innovative touch table use, we organized two brainstorm sessions, together with a Master student in Interaction Design.

How can touch tables be used in a library setting? Well, for example to present a part of the library's collection. In the Visual Navigation Project, and in collaboration with the Department of Informatics, we are exploring potential uses of touch tables.

Crowdsourcing is increasingly popular as a way to enrich the (meta)data of cultural heritage institutions, but also to increase audience engagement with heritage collections. On the 31st of October, we attended a workshop entitled Two birds, one stone: Bridging cultural heritage collections with crowds and niches, organized at the Dutch Institute for Sound and Vision. Various experts and researchers showed both the value and caveats of using crowdsourcing in an institutional setting.

The past decades have seen a transition from physical access to library materials to increasingly digital access. However, the experience of searching and browsing digital libraries is lacking many of the unique qualities of physical libraries, including opportunities for open exploration, serendipitous encounters and the tactile experience of handling items. The Visual Navigation Project aims to bridge the gap between the experience of the physical and digital library. This was done via three project streams, described next.

Since January 2015, academic libraries in Norway are making use of Oria, a catalog based on the ExLibris Primo software. Within Oria, various user actions, such as searches and clicks on search filters are captured over time, and statistical data can be accessed via Primo Analytics. This wealth of data provides new opportunities to analyze user interaction with current library catalogs, and to potentially improve the access to library collections.

In an exploratory study within the Visual Navigation Project, we have analyzed the log data available of the library catalog of the University of Oslo. In particular, we looked at two datasets: the most popular queries (between January 2015 and September 2016), and the “zero-result” queries, i.e. the queries for which searches did not get any results (between August 2015 and September 2016).
