British History Online, a case study

Through usability research, we identify mitigating strategies for the problem of information overload across three generic types of digital resource facility: category listings, product listings, and search (form and results). These practical and evidence-based activites will enable the project to show an improved return on investment to all of its funding sources by leading to greater and more informed use of the site as a whole, strengthening its case for sustainability.
