DPL: Tag Cloud Catalog Madness

I love the Denver Public Library. Hands down, coolest and cleanest library website. Check out the catalog – dreamy! AquaBrowser seems to play nicely and allow customization. The tag cloud on the left is stellar.

Everything else is spot on. This is a perfect example of creating a destination website that provides users with an optimal experience. Aesthetics matter, but so does simplicity and intuitive navigation. So many libraries blindly accept the alleged limitations of systems that are no longer working in their favor.

Denver has seized the bull by the very minimalist horns. Why have they figured it out so effortlessly?

And, don’t even get me started on the sheer brilliance of their photo collection. Charging licensing fees like the stock photo industry to support library services. Let the revolution begin!
