However when it comes to digital libraries, the interfaces have typically been designed for older children or adults. Therefore, we have begun to develop a digital library interface developmentally appropriate for young children (ages 5-10 years old). Our prototype system we now call SearchKids offers a graphical interface for querying, browsing and reviewing search results. This paper describes our motivation for the research, the design partnership we established between children and adults, our design process, the technology outcomes of our current work, and the lessons we have learned. 1. THE NEED FOR RESEARCH A growing body of knowledge is becoming available digitally for adults and older students. Far less, however, has been developed with interfaces that are suitable for younger elementary school children (ages 5-10 years old). Children want access to pictures,
