Libry Butler™ – design
Design is not only a question about, how it looks and feels. Design is also about how it works.
Libry Butler™ ’guesses’ which type of material the user is searching for. Search for “Winnie the Pooh” and Butler will properly show picture books first. The user can of course always choose another type of material.
To any search result the user will always be presented to more inspiration e.g. books of the same author, more som the same serie or materials, which other users also lend. For each material it is possible to read reviews og author portraits if there are any.
