A web site that might be useful to you is User Interface Engineering at It discusses the usability of web sites,
documentation, and other such things.

Hope it helps,

Subject: GUI resources?

I'm beginning a new project and would welcome any suggestions for getting
myself prepared. I'm going to be part of the development team for creating a
Windows GUI for our software. (I work in telecommunications, documenting our
hardware and the software that makes it run. Our software right now is
TL1-based; we're going to make a Windows GUI available for customers who
want it.) The development team will include the project engineers, our
product manager, the manager of our field services division, and myself. I'm
excited about doing something totally new, but also feel woefully
unprepared. Documenting a GUI is one thing, helping to create it seems like
quite another.

I have looked at competitors' materials, which helps when planning my
documentation of the end product but doesn't help me understand the process
involved. I've also learned, from the archives, that there is material on
the Microsoft website that I should review (especially since we will be
creating an MS Windows GUI). Has anyone out there been in my position, and
if so, what resources (books, websites, articles, etc.) did you find that
helped you understand GUIs, GUI requirements, and the GUI development

All suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.
(I don't think this is off-topic, but if any of you feel so, just respond to
me off-list, please.)
