    User Interface Patterns for Hypermedia Applications
    The authors have mined many patterns that show recurrent design problems and their solutions both while developing the navigational architecture of the application and when building its user interface for hypermedia applications (in CD-ROM and in the Web) using the Object-Oriented Hypermedia Design Method (OOHDM). This paper presents some patterns related to the design of user interfaces for hypermedia applications. Author(s) : Fernando Lyardet , Gustavo Rossi and Daniel Schwabe

    Achieving Usability Through Software Architecture
    This report presents an approach to improving the usability of software systems by means of software architectural decisions. Each aspect of usability is formulated as a scenario and for each scenario an architecture pattern is presented that implements its aspect of usability. The usability scenarios are then organized by category and a matrix is presented that correlates these two categories with the general scenarios that apply to them. Author(s) : Len Bass, Bonnie E. John and Jesse Kates

    Correcting Menu Usability Problems with Sound
    Future human-computer interfaces will use more than just graphical output to display information. This paper suggests that sound and graphics together can be used to improve interaction. The authors designed and experimentally evaluated a new set of menus with much more salient audio feedback to solve this problem. The results from the experiment showed a significant reduction in the subjective effort required to use the new sonically-enhanced menus along with significantly reduced error recovery times. A significantly larger number of errors were also corrected with sound. Author(s) : Stephan A. Brewster and Murray G. Crease

    Examining the Usability of Web Site Search
    One of the most pressing usability issues in the design of Web sites is that of how to improve navigation and search. The authors are conducting a series of usability studies to address this problem, focusing on Web sites that consist of large collections of loosely organized information. This article describes their method and presents preliminary results which suggest that use of faceted metadata can be useful both for the initial stages of highly constrained search and for the intermediate stages of less constrained browsing tasks.

    NEES Website Guidelines
    This guide suggests strategies to improve the overall usability of NEES Websites. Many of the guidelines are derived from case studies where users were presented with alternative designs for Websites in order to gather information on what features confuse users, affect their ability to find key materials, or fail to meet their expectations.

    Usability and Privacy: A Study of Kazaa P2P File-Sharing
    The authors of this paper use a cognitive walkthrough as well as a laboratory user study to analyze the usability of the Kazaa file sharing user interface. They discovered that the majority of the users in their study were unable to tell what files they were sharing, and sometimes incorrectly assumed they were not sharing any files when in fact they were sharing all files on their hard drive. They also looked at the current Kazaa network, and determined that a large number of users are currently sharing personal and private files without their knowledge, and from their dummy server they were able to see that other users are indeed taking advantage of this and downloading files such as "Credit Cards.xls" and email files.
