    1. Vertical navigation needs to scroll and “stick” to the screen so that users don’t lose it. Often vertical navigation works well on a single page design
    2. The space used by vertical navigation might be more valuable for other content.
    3. One thing is certain when it comes to navigation trends, users and designers seem to be fed up with completely hidden styles and demand options that work in similar formats on desktops and mobile devices. This might be one of the reasons a vertical pattern is trending.
    4. The common theme is that many hamburger icons open into vertical sliding navigation.
    5. One more word of advice when thinking about vertical navigation: Don’t be tempted to cram it too full of elements just to fill up the depth of a standard-resolution screen. White space is totally acceptable – and even highly recommended – as a design tool in this format.
    6. Non-traditional navigation styles can be a fun way to break up some of the same old design patterns.

      See the really creative/fun example image above.

    1. If you’re designing any similar type of filtering nav I definitely recommend studying Amazon’s strategy.
    2. Amazon has dozens of categories for every search term. This means they need a way to present refined search features without overcrowding the page. Vertical navigations just make sense because they can tuck away to the side while still being fully accessible.
    3. a fantastic UI design with vertical nav links on product search pages.
    1. A left navigation is faster and more efficient for users to scan. In just three visual fixations, users scan six items in the left navigation compared to the three items scanned in the top navigation. The left navigation also facilitates a vertical scanning direction that is natural for people
    2. A top navigation conserves more vertical page space than a left navigation. With a left navigation, the navigation links occupy the left column of your page. This shrinks and narrows the content area of your page, which means you will have less space for your content. A top navigation, however, uses minimal vertical space, which allows you to occupy the content area of your page with content only.

    1. Journal Nav Headers

      • We'd like the other journal visible in individual journal header. Can we do something similar to what we have now?
      • Collections can go under "Articles"
    2. Journal Nav Footers

      • Footer is weird with the journal footer in white on to of the umbrella footer.
      • text is too large in umbrella footer
      • Need email and RSS icons under connect - and these need to be journal specific.
      • too much emtpy space in the footers. Journal and umbrella should be combined.
    1. Learn About the Case Learn About the Book Learn About the Context

      These buttons along the bottom are a good manner of alternative navigation, directing readers toward what is most important.

    1. The Case

      Okay, the fact that this one leads to an actual page instead of just a blank with links is greatly confusing to me. At this point I would not have even clicked on the appropriate link here were I not reviewing your site, as I had just assumed it would be another nothing page.

    1. her post about the Norman dispute

      This is a very good think to have linked to, though perhaps it would be worth making the value of clicking here even more obvious.

    1. About

      Again, just a few sentences describing this section would be good. Though, thinking on it, the clickable navigation boxes also make navigation feasible on mobile devices. Well done!

    1. Documents, Objects, and Images

      You can find the images in the primary resources page. I like that the pages are kind of connected and there are multiple ways to explore and find information.

    1. History of Woman Suffrage

      This is a really nice way of showing the pages available on the site, instead of a sidebar

    1. Frontier Settlement

      Text is easily readable and is arranged in chronological order, allowing for an assumed timeline to be formed while reading. This timeline is reinforced through the menu bars on the left

    1. Grid view List view

      A grid or list view option is available, based on the reader's preference. This allows for greater readability and personalization of the site.

    1. Collection Abraham Lincoln historical digitization project (133) + - Genre books (128) + - songs (document genre) (128) + - sheet music (5) + - Creator Holmes, John (1) + - Hulbert, F.

      Easily accessible tags which can be used to find primary sources or anything else in the website's databases.

    1. Page Image

      In the primary sources section, original scanned copies can sometimes be navigated to. For example, one can access the original music score via "Page image."

    1. Home Primary Source Materials Media Special Topics About

      The site is fairly easy to navigate. The menus at the top bring you to the main pages, and the columns on the left bring you to the real research and information. "Extras" such as primary sources, interviews, etc. can be found through the top menus. In other words, things not directly related to the research compilations.

    1. Documents

      They list the number of documents they have that pertain to each source, which is really helpful.

    2. All Primary Sources (4128) Full Text Primary Sources (2699) Secondary Sources (525)

      They separate the sources based on what's primary and secondary and what is a full text source. I really like this because it is makes the site very easily to navigate.

    1. Browse Document Projects and ArchivesDocumentsFull Text SourcesBibliographyPeopleSocial MovementsChronologySubjectsBook ReviewsTeaching ToolsBack Issues

      I like the way they outline the different sections because when I was first investigating this site as a potential test site, this navigation bar helped me find everything easily

    1. Recent Additions

      This is a neat way to share what kind of content is found through this site. It shows recent additions, so if people were just looking around they can go through them. The only problem with this is that this site seems like a place you would go if you were already looking into a particular topic.

    2. Home Subjects States Time Periods Primary Source Types Map All Collections

      I really like that you can access everything from this top menu bar. I think it makes it easier to navigate and really want something like it for Karina and I's project site.

    3. Search

      I think this search bar is a nice feature because if someone is looking at information on a particular time period or person this would be an easy way for them to look through the site. And there is even an advanced search option.

    1. Star-hopping I start thinking about how I navigate the blogs, how I navigate Twitter, how I smile when I click on recognisable avatars.
