EBONI: Electronic Textbook Design Guidelines

A project of the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC), EBONI's Electronic Textbook Design Guidelines is a list of baseline standards for the design of hypertext books. Created by Ruth Wilson and Monica Landoni of the Computer and Information Science Department at the University of Strathclyde, UK, the guidelines were established to encourage the use of styles and techniques that have been most successful in terms of usability. Available in HTML, Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format, or MS Word, the document covers two distinct areas -- on-screen and hardware design guidelines -- and could be of value to online writers and publishers, information professionals, e-book hardware and software developers, and anyone else interested in the creation of scholarly digital resources.
