kind of clunky interface to 'visual' display of hits

"OCLC has implemented a data visualization pilot project in conjunction with Antarctica Systems Inc. ( to evaluate library users’ experiences with searching and display of search results using a visual interface to the Electronic Books database on OCLC FirstSearch.

.... For the purpose of this pilot, users will be searching in a static database of about 211,000 electronic book titles. The pilot will run through April 5, 2005."
from a promo e-mail from OCLC

Personally, I'm underwelmed.
