Too often I've visited web sites that looked great on the surface, but quickly became nightmares to navigate through. As a part-time web designer I try to make sure that doesn't happen, but after reading this book, I can see I still have a few things to learn. The authors are actually librarians themselves, so who better to write a book about organizing web information? They bring up many good points in this book, for example pointing out that designing a good information system on a web site requires careful planning, not just of the information but also your audience, what your audience will be looking for in the site, what kind of information, how you want them to navigate the site, etc. Also, the book's chapters covers topics like doing research on how the site should be set up, what types of search engines you should use for it, keeping the 'look and feel' of your site while using a search engine, types of information 'system' that work best for you, the process of planning and finally creating it, and then maintaining it after it is up and running. This book offers a good introduction to a part of web design that isn't terribly glamorous but still necessary.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
