Attached are 2 files that I created in 2002-2003 about Location, Path & Attribute Breadcrumbs. This work on breadcrumbs was first presented as a poster at the 3rd Annual Information Architecture Summit, March 16-17, 2002.

These are fantastic PDFs, thank you! I have doing some research on breadcrumbs for a new article on my web design blog. These studies have been a great help. I've been noticing that breadcrumbs are often over looked by designers. They take a minimal effort to incorporate into a design and have great benefits and payoffs. I appreciate you sharing your studies!
