Christie: September 2008 Archives
So when I posted an entry about the Internet Resources Icon a few months back, it turned into a much bigger UI project on our end. We decided to just revamp the way we display our icons all together.
We installed the new icons in early September, so you may see new icons appearing that weren't previously on worldcat.org, such as ebooks, downloadable audiobooks, video games, audiobooks on tape, and toys. It's a rather manual process to identify these new types, so an ongoing effort is underway to refine our definitions so that we are displaying what is most meaningful to our worldcat.org user. You may see these new icons and types gradually being introduced into the different parts of worldcat.org as we complete this effort. If you have any comments on the icons and types that we added to worldcat.org, please send them our way!
