Friday Fun Link – International Children's Digital Library (Nov 17, 2006)

The International Children’s Digital Library
was initially created by an interdisciplinary research team at the
University of Maryland in cooperation with the Internet Archive.
Members of the team include computer scientists, librarians,
educational technologists, classroom teachers, graphic designers, and
graduate students from the University of Maryland’s (UMD) College of
Information Studies (CLIS) and the UMD Human-Computer Interaction Lab
(HCIL), a leader in children’s interface design.”

Their search interface
is particularly cool – it’s very kid-friendly with big, obvious buttons
that allow users to search for books by age range, length, subject and
most importantly, cover colour! You can also search using combinations
of the above. (Thanks to Linda B. for the tip!)
