Discovery and access systems for websites and cultural heritage sites: Reconsidering the practical application of facets

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Facets are an increasingly common feature of contemporary access and discovery systems. These intuitively adaptable structures seem well suited for application in information architecture and the practice of knowledge management (La Barre, 2006). As browsing and searching devices, facets function equally well on e-commerce sites, digital museum portals, and online library catalogs. This paper argues that clearly articulated principles for facets and facet analysis must draw examples from current practice while building upon heritage principles in order to scaffold the development of robust and fully faceted information infrastructures.
