Designing the user interface of a federated system (what we call a browsing interface) must consider the knowledge gap that exists between desires of the users and the needs the systems are built to support. The concept of Habitable Interfaces aims to bridge the knowledge gap by providing kinds of representations and the interaction with these representations that are based on domain knowledge. Habitable Interfaces will allow the organising of currently disparate archives into cohesive domain specific federations of information resources. To approach designing Habitable Interfaces we propose a model of communication and a criterion.
