9780838985021: Design Talk: Understanding the Roles of Usability Practitioners, Web Designers, and Web Developers in User-Centered Web Design

While many books on website development and design exist, few address the interaction among the various roles involved. This book brings together and differentiates the scope of responsibilities and activities of usability practitioners and web designers. These roles are often confused and/or conflated and Design Talk seeks to shed light on the very important reasons for the separateness of these roles and activities. Included in the volume are descriptions of and instructions for conducting different types of usability tests and discussion of web design issues.
Design Talk presents an alternative to web design by committee and is suitable for people with a vested interest in web content, including reference librarians, usability practitioners, and web designers. Library administrators who want to create clearer lines of authority among staff who participate in the web design process will also find the book useful.
