The article on computer history by Zimmermann seems to be a rather Americentric perspective on computer history though her work does help to high light significant mile stones in the history of computing that I a searching for.
The Encyclopedia Britanica has articles on the Human-Machine interface, which is another term for user interface. It is the means by which humans and computers communicate with each other with hardware (mouse, keyboard ect.) and software (operating systems)
