AbstractA document holder for use in supporting documents in a ergonomically correct position with respect to a video display screen and a keyboard of a computer workstation, word processor and the like. The document holder includes a generally upright transparent easel supported on a bracket for vertical adjustment with respect to the bracket. The easel support bracket is mounted on a support rail and is laterally slidable from side-to-side for positioning the easel in a selected horizontal position along a line substantially parallel to the plane of the video display screen. The easel support bracket rail member is mounted on spaced apart pivot brackets for pivoting the easel about an axis parallel to the lateral slide axis. The support brackets are mounted on trunnions disposed on opposed support arms which, in turn, are mounted on a pedestal member for sliding movement to selected working positions of the easel toward and away from the display screen and along an axis generally normal to the display screen. The support arms are supported on rail members which may be detachably connected to a pedestal member forming part of a pedestal having plural stackable pedestal members. The easel support pedestal member may be selectively positioned in the pedestal stack to also adjust the height of the document holder. Thus, the document holder is positionable along three mutually perpendicular axes and may be rotated about one of the axes to place the easel in a selected working position.
