Erogonomics (for Ergonomics)

The International Ergonomics Association defines its area of study as "the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance." We librarian types should be interested in ergonomics, as should all those whose vocations involve repetitive motions.

Erogonomics is listed as a lowest-probability typo, and there are currently 2 occurrences of it in the OhioLink database. So the keystrokes required to correct these errors in your own catalog should pose no threat!
