Unattended Digital Libraries investigates the best use for unattended presentations as used in museums and libraries. The objective is to find out how much text and images and for how long any slide of content will capture the attention of a potential viewer. A subset of a digital library, namely the Online Bleek and Lloyd collection, was used in various slideshows and reviewed by users. The results show that users prefer to read less than ten words on any screen and the screen usually catches their attention for roughly 2 minutes.
