User Journeys Exploration

User journeys excerpt

Specific user scenarios:

Instructional librarians want to teach users how to navigate library materials using subject headings

Researchers want to find related items that are physically distributed across multiple locations (or consortia?) - mixing the physical and the digital - in the form of a visual shelf browse

Knowledge Panel MVP

Scenarios to frame Browse and Data discussions

Example: Navigating Taxonomies: Among and Between

What data connections and sources would be useful?
