1988: Design and evaluation of computer/human interfaces : issues for librarians and information scientists


25th Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing (1988). Edited by Martin A. Siegel.

A computer/human interface functions at the intersection of machines, people, information, and tasks. Growing emphasis within the library and information science community has been placed on the development of these interfaces an aspect of design loosely termed user friendliness. This emphasis becomes increasingly important as the number of computers in libraries continues to rise along with their use by nonspecialists.

The year 1988 marked the 25th Annual Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing. Therefore, it was appropriate for three members of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science faculty to provide a quarter-century retrospective focusing on three major clinic themes: public services, technical services, and administrative/ management concerns. This volume begins with these preconference papers.

The complete text of the proceedings is available here as well as the individual papers. The papers included here are:
