LTK Prototype

Zine browsing and promo prototypes for Library Test Kitchen 2016 at Simmons.

The prototype attempted to address some library design questions, including: How can strangely sized/fragile/packaged library materials be more browsable? How do we make our special collections more accessible to a brand new user? While digitization is a great way to get more visibility and increase accessibility to collections on a global scale, how can we locally engage users with hard-to-access collections on site? Will this draw greater attention to hidden-in-plain-sight collections? Will this increase use of the collection?
