The O*NET acronym stands for “Occupational Information Network.” It is an automated database that replaces the Dictionary of Occupational Titles ( DOT) as the nation’s primary source of occupational information. The O*NET information is available as a timely, easy-to-use database that is designed to help millions of employers, workers, educators, and students make informed decisions about education, training, career choices, and work. The O*NET database contains information about work attributes (e.g., skills and abilities), and can be accessed via O*NET Online at http://online.onetcenter.org.
- Guy André Boy has over 30 years experience in the field of human-centered design
- Contains reflections and real-world examples from practice in both industry and academia
- Human-centered design is a necessary approach to modern engineering design
The time has come to move into a more humanistic approach of technology and to understand where our world is moving to in the early twenty-first century. The design and development of our future products needs to be orchestrated, whether they be conceptual, technical or organizational. Orchestrating Human-Centered Design presents an Orchestra model that attempts to articulate technology, organizations and people. Human-centered design (HCD) should not be limited to local/short-term/linear engineering, but actively focus on global/long-term/non-linear design, and constantly identify emergent properties from the use of artifacts.
Orchestrating Human-Centered Design results from incremental syntheses of courses the author has given at the Florida Institute of Technology in the HCD PhD program. It is focused on technological and philosophical concepts that high-level managers, technicians and all those interested in the design of artifacts should consider. Our growing software -intensive world imposes better knowledge on cognitive engineering, life-critical systems, complexity analysis, organizational design and management, modeling and simulation, and advanced interaction media, and this well-constructed and informative book provides a road map for this.

APA Handbook of Industrial and Organizational Psychology is now available electronically through APA PsycNet.
All of the APA databases are now available on the APA PsycNET platform. You can search the databases- PsycInfo, PsycArticles, PsycBooks, and PsycExtra- individually or all at once.
While the I/O Portal is under construction, I welcome your feedback regarding what types of tools and resources you would like to see included.
The idea is that this portal would be your departments “go to” page for digital scholarly resources and, while I will be the manager of the site, the content will be driven by its users.
To give you some ideas regarding what we can include, here is a link to portals which have already been created: Research Portals
In the near future, I hope to have several mechanisms in place through which you could provide feedback and suggestions. In the meantime, please email those ideas to me firstname.lastname@example.org.
