From Sarah Bordac:
Attached are a few articles I thought you’d find interesting:
1) Look at university web sites and how so many fail to be all they should be. Download file
2) Nice summary/wrap-up of principles for UI design. It’s nice to have someone put many of the basics together in a convenient package. Download file
3) Jakob Nielsen’s Alertbox on Medical Usability Has a little bit on university web sites under the sub-header “Locating the Paper: More Usability Trials” http://www.useit.com/alertbox/20050411.html
