“Information Architecture for the World Wide Web” by Peter Morville and Louis Rosenfeld
When I was still in school and following my Usability and Design class with Eric Reiss, I always felt compelled to dig deeper into Information Architecture. And although I got out of the course more than I thought I would, I still wanted to get more on this particular topic. Naturally, the book “Information Architecture for the World Wide Web” by Peter Morville and Louis Rosenfeld felt right and made it on my wish list. It has been there for a while until the day I bought it and got it on my Kindle.
But enough prehistory! This book is simply great! It walks you through the core of information architecture (also called IA). The beauty about it is that it does not make any assumptions that you know what IA actually means. It just starts from scratch. The reader is guided through the definitions, explanations, principles, techniques and so much more. On top of that, it opens the wonderful world of Information Architecture to your thirst of knowledge.
This book is not only for people who would like to venture in this field. It is for every digital marketer out there. It is also for every individual that would like to explore the methods of navigation, taxonomy, classification etc. Big thumbs up, if you decide to read it!
Thank you, Peter and Louis, for taking the time and sharing your knowledge with me!
The book can be purchased at Amazon.
