The National Art Library (London) is currently transcribing manuscripts into an electronic format to better preserve and present the information contained within and make the documents available for various research uses. Through surveys and interviews with researchers and library staff, we designed an online text search and display system for these transcriptions. Our design includes recommendations for a database, parser, interface, and universal accessibility options, as well as a prototype to demonstrate the system's functionalities, all with an emphasis on human-computer interaction.
