About the Author:

Dr Carole A. George is a Human Factors Researcher with the Carnegie Mellon University Libraries. With an emphasis on improving users’ access to information, Ms. George’s work focuses on usability studies of library websites and evaluation studies of library services. Her research interests and efforts have been directed towards user-centered interface design and information behaviour studies.

From Booklist:

Beginning by defining user-centered design and its purpose, the work guides the reader through the process of a creating a Web site, beginning with the preliminary planning and doing a user-needs analysis. The idea of participatory design of a Web site is next explored, followed by methods of usability inspection such as heuristic evaluation and cognitive walk-throughs. Planning for usability testing of a Web site and methods to communicate the findings are discussed, and real-life examples are provided in an appendix. An extensive glossary of terms, a lengthy bibliography, and an in-depth index complete the work. Numerous figures and tables provide visuals to assist the user in following the textual advice. This work is of use to any library, whether creating a new site or revising a current one. --Sara Marcus
