(Picture of Gary Perlman, 2010) Hello, I am Gary Perlman and I work on making information more useful and usable by people. I worked at OCLC for 17 years, where I worked on research and development of human factors of bibliographic and full-text retrieval systems, notably OCLC's FirstSearch and WorldCat services.

Born and raised in Montreal, Canada, I lived in the United States for 30 years and moved back in the summer of 2003.

Most people will want to go to my page of resources on human-computer interaction (like the HCI Bibliography) and empirical methods (like the |STAT data analysis package). My user interface questionnaire page is also popular.
