Short paper – Public Library Consoles – Publishing Collections with the Flick of a Hand

Authors: Dan Norton, Fernando Vilariño Freire


The paper looks at public consoles for accessing digital collections. The research begins with an interactive artwork that mixes multiple audio and visual collections, and through a series of iterations develops into a touch-free infra-red interface for browsing and publishing a single collection.

Theme: console, digital collections, publishing, online archives, crowdsourcing

  • Abstract: A series of consoles have been developed to investigate the sharing of digital collections in public libraries. The interfaces reduce in complexity throughout the study to facilitate ease of access whilst maintaining playability and engagement. Interaction in the final interface is sufficiently simplified to enable browsing and publishing of the collection with hand movements, using a low-cost infrared sensor.
