History Lab

Problem: The U.S. Government recently declassified millions of documents for the first time in history. The History Lab project intends to allow users access, view and annotate previously classified documents. 

Situation: Working closely with an academic team composed of Data Scientists, Statisticians, and Historians to update the site.

Research:  Heuristic Evaluation. User Interviews. User testing with small sample group of prototype of the overview page. Card sorts for category ideas. 

Design: The topic page will be a new addition to the site incorporating the various topics available in the documents and will be represented graphically and in text.
