We were asked to design the new layout of Linked Open Data portal, namely Coordinamento Biblioteche Speciali e Specialistiche di Torino (CoBiS). The project, realized owing to the support of the Regione Piemonte, aims at generating connections between bibliographical data, retrieved from the libraries that participate in the experimentation, and the web community.

The first objective of the project was to adopt clear and transparent UX and UI strategies, in order to make more accessible and valuable an innovative and ambitious project. The design of portal was thus conceived to impart users the technology of Linked Data. Subsequently, most of our work focused on improving the website User Experience in order to provide higher accessibility to CoBiS Libraries’ information and materials. Owing to interactive elements, such as a photographic map, the user can easily access all the volumes, provided by singular libraries.
