CLF and User Perceptions


I am curious to know if anyone has conducted research to explore issues
around the use of Common Look and Feel (CLF) design templates in the

In particular, I am wondering if any work has been done to consider the
effect a CLF has on the user’s perception of how an organization’s
departments/units are inter-related, and to what extent their perception
of the connectedness on the web translates to their understanding of how
the departments/units are actually connected in terms of organizational
infrastructure in reality.

As an example, several large univer

Examples of filtered lists with dropdowns

Does anyone have good examples of lists w/ filter dropdowns, where the
dropdowns show the number of items available for each select option? ...With
a good solution for how to handle these numbers once the user starts making
selections in other dropdowns.

I'm especially interested in lists that do not redraw instantly, because
that option isn't available to us right now because of technical
limitations. Instead, the user would need to click on an update button to
redraw the list.

(We're using dropdowns because we have very limited real estate available on
the page.)

Hi All,

I have a question for all you IxD experts that could really help me. I have just qualified from a degree in HCI, and am aiming to start a job in Interaction Design. I have a good grounding in general usability, but would like to find out more about good, practical IxD that would help me prepare for a career in this field. I know a book alone isn't enough, and experience is the most vital thing, but everyone has to start somewhere.

Are there any good books people can recommend?

Is there an IxD bible?
Is there a good book that describes practical methodologies?
