Godt webdesign: dovenskaben længe leve

En del biblioteker opslår i disse tider ledige stillinger som webredaktør, hvilket jeg vælger at tolke som et fokus på en øget indsats inden for den digitale formidling. Det er en prioritering, som jeg kun kan bifalde, og i den forbindelse vil jeg gerne slå et slag for Steve Krug's bog "Don't make me think", der er en velskrevet lettilgængelig bog om brugervenligt webdesign.

Den er ikke oversat til dansk, men frygt ikke - Steve Krug skriver lige ud ad landevejen uden brug af store fancy ord og holder sig i bund og grund til sine egne principper om brugervenlighed, hvoraf det vigtigste er at udelade alle overflødige ord, fordi mennesket er for dovent til at læse mere end højst nødvendigt.

Du kan læse et prøvekapitel, "How we really use the Web", som påpeger og forklarer brugernes typiske adfærd med at skimme en webside frem for at læse den. Krug trækker bl.a. det faktum frem, at mange bruger ting uden egentlig forståelse for, hvordan de fungerer.

Et af hans yndlingseksempler er meget apropos for os bibliotekarer manges opfattelse af en søgemaskine som værende hele Internettet:

"My favorite example is the people (and I’ve seen dozens of them myself) who will type a site’s entire URL in the Yahoo search box every time they want to go to there—not just to find the site for the first time, but every time they want to go there, sometimes several times a day. If you ask them about it, it becomes clear that some of them think that Yahoo is the Internet, and that this is the way you use it"

Nemlig! Krug er simpelthen god og lige til. Kan kun bakke op om den anbefaling. Synes det er fedt biblioteker får sat mere fokus på deres websites og dermed også brugervenlighed.
