Abstract

This work seeks to enhance a user’s experience in a digital library using group-based social navigation. Ensemble is a portal focusing on computing education as part of the US National Science Digital Library providing access to a large amount of learning materials and resources for education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. With so many resources and so many contributing groups, we are seeking an effective way to guide users to find the right resource(s) by using group-based social navigation. This poster demonstrates how group-based social navigation can be used to extend digital library portals and how it can be used to guide portal users to valuable resources.
