DescriptionA page listing sources for a specific taxonomy dimension will list the most relevant sources at the top. However, they are visually indistinct from sources which contain a lower quantity of relevant content.
RecommendProminence to be given to sources which occupy the top n positions, possibly through a gallery device, after which sources have clearly lower relevance.
ExamplesFor Scotland, the list of sources moves from the Topographical Dictionary of Scotland to local records from Cumberland without any presentational cue. The underlying weighting figure drops by nearly 90% at that point.
