Editor/Author Biographies
Dr. Yin-Leng Theng is an associate professor in the School of Communication and Information at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. She completed her PhD in 1997 on addressing the “lost in hyperspace” problem in hypertext, and proposed a framework to understand design and usability issues. She then joined Middlesex University (London) as a Lecturer from 1998 to 2001. Presently, she teaches on the Information Studies Masters Programme: Digital Libraries and Human-Computer Interaction. Her research interests in Human-Computer Interaction and Digital Libraries had led to the award of two research grants from the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council in the United Kingdom during her four years of teaching at Middlesex University (London). Recently, she received a three-year university research grant to design and develop a suite of usability engineering tools for digital libraries on mobile environments and the Web.
