User centered design and the next generation OPAC - a perfect match? Libris at ELAG2008

One of the most special talks of ELAG2008 was the presentation about the new well designed portal by Libris. The looks are refreshingly clear, and the theories behind it sound logical to me. A very structured way of tackling the design of user-centered design.

Especially the talk by Martin Malmsten on iterative development will be a pleasure to watch again, as soon as the movies as public!
I was surprised to see a great overview for users to implement the Libris search in their own sites with bookmarklets, searchboxes & plugins.

As a sign of support I made them a Netvibes UWA widget on the fly during their presentations: http://eco.netvibes.com/widgets/237820/libris-search
