As part of our preparatory work before we start re-implementing site search on our website (and further down the line when we look at redeveloping the V&A’s Search the Collections site), we are reading relevant academic literature (journal access permitting!) to learn from other’s experiences – what’s worked and what’s not. As a useful way to record what we are reading, we have been using Zotero – a free tool to help you collect, organise, cite and share your research sources. We have now created a public group on Zotero to record the papers and websites we find, which may be of interest to other institutions planning a similar project.
Any pointers to relevant papers welcome!
