The user centered design to information systems begun from the availability of search technology for ‘novice’ end users. They outnumbered the experts.

Information systems are communication systems.
-- Bryce (1996)

It is a *philosophy and a **process.
-- Katz-Haas (1998)

*the person or user of information is the core of the design

**focus on behavior and cognitive functions as user interacts w/ a system.

There is a 3rd P - ***purpose

***goals, objectives, needs and tasks of users.

User centered ISD looks into users' needs, tasks, goals and fucntions so that the information systems to be developed and designed are useful and usable.
