Dan,

A couple of thoughts...

First, is there any way that you can help people filter the list so that
they can more quickly get to the information that matters to them? Perhaps a
search within results or some form of directed search (like ebay express:
http://search.express.ebay.com/Computers-Networking_Laptop-PCs_ )

Second, I've been seeing a lot more live updating of tables like this:
http://www.i-marco.nl/weblog/archive_explorer.php - where the list refreshes
as the person scrolls.

As for pagination, do you know that people will keep going past 'x' number
of pages?

Jon

Hi Dan,

What is the nature of the content? Sometimes the scrolling/pagination
can be driven by the content.

A great example comes from a friend who used to develop hardware at
GE Medical Systems. They were developing a new way for doctors to
browse through x-rays. Traditionally, doctors used something that
looked like a giant rolodex. They had a foot pedal that way used to
rotate to the next set of images. In his work, they were replacing
the analog images with monitors. When they did this, they thought
that they would build in a nice forward/backwards button that the
doctor's could operate by hand. However, all of the doctors had a
problem with this. They tried creating a pedal to help them navigate
and it worked perfectly. It was a bridge solution, but they
recognized that in this particular context, the subject matter
experts were used to working in a certain way.

Hi

Thanks for the thoughts.

The site is being designed to encourage more browsing, which means that we
would like the user to pass the current 'page x'. Faceted/guided nav will
also be supported (thanks for the example) but I am currently thinking of
rich ways of allowing for pagination.

Hi Dan:
As previous guys also ask the questions:

1. As for pagination, do you know that people will keep going past 'x'
number of pages?
2. What is the nature of the content? Sometimes the
scrolling/pagination can be driven by the content.

it's interesting to append some questions:

1. What's your intended user group? and what's their purpose in
browsing your content? And
2. Why they want a pagination? or as John says "driven by
content"which is more proper for user's reading flow.

>From my own experience, pagination seldom help me read the content for
online content, but it's more for reference ( and we also have link for
electronic content which be used widely by wiki sites )

For paging, there's some examples from my own experience( as the previous
guys already cited).

1. something like the google's result paging, but if you want to
emphasize it, you can put it on the top, (many cites use it as "first <<
...4,5,7 ...>> next 10 >> last ") to enable the reader browser page by page
or in multi pages mode
2. or like e-book done by adobe reader

Cheers

Just a thought, but what about something like Google Reader's (
http://www.google.com/reader/) interface? It offers the content either by
title only or by full article and seamlessly loads historical content in the
background.
