Hi Will

Martin Maguire of Husat, Loughborough, UK published a survey of
interface guidelines for kiosks somewhere around 2000. I used to be
able to google for them and find them pretty easily but today I'm
finding tantalising glimpses of the doc but not what I was looking
for, and I need to return to another deadline.

But, I'm hoping that those hints will be enough to help you locate the
guidelines.

best,

That sounds like it may be very useful, and I don't mind sweating
over Google and the Internet Archive for a while. If I find Maguire's
research, I'll post a link here.

Thanks!

Caroline:

Excellent hint! The name of the paper was "A review of user-interface
design guidelines for public information kiosk systems", Martin C.
Maguire, 1999. With that in hand, I was able to come up with a
treasure trove of related articles. Here's the Google Scholar link:

Excuse me - hit the Send button prematurely by accident. Here's the
completed version.

Perhaps even better was the abbreviated version of that search, which
turned up a broader selection of articles on kiosk interfaces:
