Information Access Based on Color in Children's Digital Library

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Children's digital library is a facility where children can find various resources to cater their information requirement and curious instinct. Among challenges in developing children's digital library involve designing information access in such a format that is suitable for them. This study aims to propose information access application based on color for children's digital library. This attribute is suitable for searching technique in the application since children may easily associate important information with colors. An application has been designed and developed to fulfill the requirement. The prototype has been tested among a group of children to test the reliability and usability of the system and the children's opinion on the library environment.
