Abstract:This paper presents a framework for looking at different kinds of input/ output devices, and provides some general characteristics regarding input/ output devices currently on the market. This paper will cover personal-use input/output devices. By "personal use" we mean those things that would normally be found at a user work station to support individuals in their work activities. These devices would also make it possible for them to communicate with one or more information retrieval systems. Not included in this particular group are card readers, line printers, floppy discs, hard discs, modems, point-of-sale terminals (which you probably have contact with every day in supermarkets), and automated teller machines (where you can get cash any time of day or night).
