  1. Lorcan, I agree, I think the role of browse is extremely important. Library users are always talking about serendipity in finding items on the shelf. We have great opportunities to take this into the online environment with browsing. Another interface that I think does a wonderful job of offering a rich browsing experience is the new online audio service Smithsonian Global Sound:

    Users may browse by Geography, Instrument, Culture Groups, Ensemble Types, and Languages. Oh, and there’s a simple search box for everything else. Cheers, John
