I appreciate it when I find a place that does something way better than how I was doing it. I used to have a usability research directory that I kept up. It was mostly for my own use, to keep track of case studies and articles that would back up the work I do. I became too busy to keep it up.
However, there is an incredible resource that some of you may not be aware of, that I wish to share. It is the Web Design References by the University of Minnesota Duluth. Topics covered:
- Cascading Style Sheets
- Evaluation & Testing
- Events and Conferences
- Information Architecture
- Navigation & Labeling
- Sites & Blogs
Every page is packed with articles and publications culled from authoritative sites.
I had thought I’d bring back my own resources and the free testing section at some point. But while we wait for me to decide on their usefulness, I feel good about showing this enormous goldmine of information available to you now.
