"Information architecture: a brief tour"


Amanda will introduce the discipline of information architecture and
discuss its relevance to cataloguing librarians. Information
architecture is a developing discipline that has been defined as the
construction of a structure, or the organisation of information. This
includes using taxonomies, tags, faceted classification and
folksonomies. Information architecture is one of the ways that we can
start to deal with the 'unintended consequences of the information age'
- information overload, information anxiety and junk information.
