Textbook Hartson and Pyla – Designer perspective – Extensive search…. – Big book but don’t fear…. – Electronic? – Best experience so far on ipad - DL Reader, also tried Bluefire web version Very long and wordy – Do not fear! – Reduces cross referencing – More useful as reference – We focus on HCI broader view (cf. Usability Engineering) Focus on required readings
