I notice that the test catalogue at the University of Huddersfield is showing loan history.
Quite nice. Does it tell you everything about the book? No. Is it interesting? Yes. Does it enhance the user experience? Well, it did mine. I even played with it for a while looking to see what sort of profile books I was familiar with had. Another way of considering the book, presented in an easy to understand way ….
Update: The catalog tends to be flat. It does not offer much of an experience. I like this feature because it adds another dimension to your understanding of the book. As does the ‘people who have borrowed this have also borrowed ..’ feature. These added features potentially increase the engagement of the user.
