Stanford On-line medical library contains thousands of scientific articles categorized according to their topics. Users can browse collection of topics using a visual tree. Clicking on a topic moves it to the center of the display.   Clicking and dragging moves topics of interest toward the center and exposes new topics which had previously been minimized. Double-clicking on a topic will show a list of the documents in the original web browser window. Typing a term in the 'Search for Topics" box will highlight all topics that have a topic name that contains the search term. The highlights appear as red triangles next to the topics. Hovering over a topic (without clicking) triggers a popup window that gives the full topic name and the number of documents in the topic (if that count is greater than zero).


Benefits:

Improved access to information, ability to discover new information, ability to see  and understand relationships between different topics and concepts
