Required reading for web designers,
This review is from: Information Architecture for the World Wide Web: Designing Large-Scale Web Sites (Paperback)
Written from the viewpoint of ex-librarians, this book unravels the complexities of a new discipline - presenting information efficiently and effectively on the web, and the myriad challenges this throws up. For anyone building even the simplest of websites, and certainly for people who start thinking of adding a "search" facility to their sites, there really is no better place to start to get up to speed, and to consider the pitfalls in order to avoid them.
The fascinating thing about information architecture (posh name, simple concept) is that it is a relatively new discipline, with fluid terminology and theories. This book not only gives good weight to theory and academia, but is also packed with practical advice to help you improve your websites immediately.
A weighty, essential read.
