Abstract

A document stand provides a support for documents that is less fatiguing to use than contemporary holders when inputting data into small computers, such as the IBM Personal Computer. Document stand 10 measures at least 11 x 17 inches to accommodate two letter size documents side by side, and has a lip 11 extending upward approximately one inch along the 17-inch dimension. It is preferably made of clear plastic to allow visual checking of the condition of the disk units. Document lip 11 rests against keyboard ledge 12 above the number key row. The upper portion of the stand rests above the diskette units on the housing 13. This position allows the operator to more easily refer between the input document, the keyboard and the monitor.
