Abstract
Reports the results of a research project, conducted by the School of Computing and Mathematics and the Library of Huddersfield Polytechnic, into the problem of matching the user interface of OPACs to the needs of users. The project brought together issues involving: Human Computer Instruction (HCI); system methods in the determinination of user requirements; and user centred design, and prototyping in a sequence of design and evaluation cycles. These cycles applied appropriate HCI styles, techniques and equipment (such as Graphical User Interface (GUI) and a mouse pointing device) and incorporated the lessons of each evaluation, to produce an OPAC user interface, ICARUS, which differs considerably in style, behaviour and characteristcs from those commonly encountered in academic and public libraries. The project concluded by evaluating ICARUS, against the BLCMP OPAC with 38 subjects in the Library of Huddersfield Polytechnic, and demonstrating a significant improvement in performance for different tasks for the ICARUS interface
