Library OPAC Metadata Record Clusters for Fiction

This is the academic-sounding title for my online card catalog redesign project. My design improves author and title searching by grouping results by thematic categories. The HTML interface uses a three-column layout to provide relative context to a searcher for easier database browsing. Elements from physical catalogs are incorporated into this design, for greater comfort to non-computer savvy patrons. I worked on this for my Interaction Design class.
