WeCurate is a shared image browser for collaboratively curating a virtual exhibition from a cultural image archive. This paper is concerned with the evaluation and iteration of a prototype UI (User In- Terface) design to enable this community image browsing. In WeCurate, several remote users work together with autonomic agents to browse the archive and to select, through negotiation and voting, a set of images which are of the greatest interest to the group. The UI allows users to synchronize viewing media, assists navigating the cultural institutions extensive database and users negotiations about which images should be added to the group's image collection. The objective of WeCurate is to provide a platform for a sociocultural experience, combining the actions of autonomic agents and users to facilitate decision-making, and Elec- Tronic Institutions to articulate and structure the behavioural norms of groups.
