Advances in Human/Computer Interaction, Volume 5

Jakob Nielsen , 1995

This volume attempts to fight the information overload experienced during the 1980s and 1990s. Its concentration is on surveying important areas, providing an overview of recent advancements, and surveying interesting specific design or development projects to show how the state of the art is being carried out. Essays by specialists that speculate on important trends in the field are also included. Edited by Jakob Nielsen (published by Intellect Publishers; ISBN 1-56750-199-0).
