Hi Guys,

My name is Juliano Fonseca and i'm brazilian an i,m graduating in Design in
a college over here. My graduation requires a study about Any area of design
and i choose a software design.

My College(UFES -http://www.ufes.br ) has a Library and i always have
problem to find any book i want. They have a sistem of an On-line Library,
but it has a controlled vocabulary. They have over 200.000 books.

I think its not has a centered-user-design.But it can be.

I think that studies about taxonomy, folksonomy and outhers areas of IA can
help the user. I think that semantic collaborative tagging can help users to
find books whiout a mess for the librarians.

Do you, guys know anything about this area, like books any link about it?

Thanks and i'm sorry about any errors in my english. It's not so good
anymore.

Hi Juliano,

You might check out 'Ambient Findability' by Peter Morville and
'Everything is Miscellaneous' by David Weinberger. Both are recent
(within the last couple of years) and both discuss current
perspectives and theory regarding those topics. I would be surprised
and impressed if either were in a library yet though.

I develop tools that are used in and by Libraries specifically medical libraries, and this bring up a question I mull around form time to time. Often a tool starts out every intuitive and easy for general public to use, but as we develop it more the staff and heavy users of the system learn tricks and idiosyncrasies that allow them to more quickly find information and then ask for these (features) to be more developed. My question is this good user interface where my target audience has just changed or is this design regression? I%u2019ve seen this pendulum swing both ways many times.

A couple of blogs that might provide some useful lines of inquiry for
you:

http://personalinfocloud.com/
http://many.corante.com/
http://tagsonomy.com/

You also might want to check out Library Thing and Good Reads, which
offer different approaches to collaborative tagging and social
classification/rating of books.
