Explore the Stacks
The Explore the Stacks application demonstrates how browsing-based navigation can be combined with search to enable an integrated experience. In the application a collection of approximately 30,000 books from the British Library and their illustrations can be explored.
Instead of providing a list of 1 to 10 items after the user has entered a search keyword, it highlights those books or shelves that contain the keyword. Thus the user can find what they are looking for, but they can also see the other books that sit on the digital shelves.
