Tzoc, Elias
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v23 n1 p43-55 2011
According to the "Framework of Guidance for Building Good Digital Collections," a good collection is broadly available and avoids unnecessary impediments to use. Two challenges, however, are the constant change in users' expectations and the increasing volume of information in local repositories. Therefore, as academic and research institutions continue to work on providing online access to primary source materials, they need to integrate effective interaction methods among digital objects, metadata, and user interface. This article provides an overview of the implementation of five features for customizing digital collections Web sites: AutoSuggest, TagCloud, A-Z List, Share-It, and CalView. (Contains 8 figures.)
