Title
¬A model for the evaluation of an information retrieval system in terms of user friedliness
Source
Mousaion. 11(1993) no.2, S.122-136
Year
1993
Abstract
A new approach to the evaluation of information retrieval systems in terms of user friendliness has been devloped. Selective design principles for the interface will serve as the point of departure. These design principles have been incorporated in the model together with previously determined catageries and subcategories of user friedliness. Other aspects of user friendliness have also been incorporated into the model. Discusses the role of the designer and the end user during the design of a user friedly information retrieval system
