BARBOZA, Elza Maria Ferraz; NUNES, Eny Marcelino de Almeida  and  SENA, Nathália Kneipp. Governmental web sites, a virtual esplanade. Ci. Inf. [online]. 2000, vol.29, n.1, pp.118-125. ISSN 0100-1965.

Web sites of Brazilian federal government were analysed and evaluated, particularly the sites of the ministries that are part of the Information Society Programme. A checklist based on ergonomic principles was established. Evaluative criteria were clustered into four large main headings: scope and purpose; content; graphics and multimedia design; workability. It points out that the governamental agencies should improve their web sites aimed at a better adequacy to ergonomic standards.

Keywords : Web sites; Evaluation; Usability; Government; Brazil.
