A Participatory Design Workshop was held at the National Library of Wales on the 6th of February 2013.
The workshop was collaborated by staff at the National Library of Wales and a team from the Humanities Research Institute at the University of Sheffield who are working on a project entitled Participating in Search Design: a study of George Thomason’s English Newsbooks. The goal of the workshop was to pilot a participatory design approach to the development of the library’s World War I digital resource by engaging with potential end users. The range of different media present in the archive means that compiling the digital resource has posed significant questions and challenges to the design of the interface.
