Project Description:
This project explores how data visualization techniques can be used to display the contents of library catalogues, creating a new way of searching for information.

The first part of this project uses The St Bride Library catalogue as a subject to develop a visual system that can be applied to any other library using a similar classification system. The final design displays the libraries classification hierarchy and the volume of information held on each subject within the classification system.

The screen-based outcome of this project is a prototype of an interactive tool/website that enables users to compare library catalogues and discover which libraries hold the most items on a given subject by comparing their library spot size.
