Abstract: Traditionally, librarians have not been trained in graphic design. However, with the proliferation of the World Wide Web and the concept of librarian as educator, librarians are being called upon with increasing frequency to design Web pages and electronic educational materials. The author presents basic design principles as they relate to the development of the user interface. Design areas covered are line, shape, type, texture, balance, contrast, unity, value, and color. Illustrations are used to provide the reader with visual applications of the design principles as they relate to library applications.
