Abstract [en]

New ways to search the library catalogImages, animations and sound has not an obvious role as information carriers in the library catalog. To create a new interface which inspires and allows a more visual browsing we collaborated with children, artists, design students and software developers. The prototype has been implemented on an interactive touch floor screen. The new interface is based on the circle form, is voice controlled and has images and animations in focus. This new information landscape involves the whole body in the search process. The interface can of course be displayed on more common technological devices as smartphones and tablets.
