Overview

This book is composed of 12 essays and five case studies, each exploring an aspect of information architecture, a nascent field that has not yet been fully defined. While detailed and rigorous, the contributions are not opaque to the non- expert and are readable by anyone with a casual acquaintance with computer networking and organizational terminology. The material is divided into four broad categories on the design environment, software environments, management of metadata, and the user interface. The book is aimed at anyone with an occupation that makes it reasonable to describe them as an "information professional." Annotation © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
