The post-Ajaxian Web 2.0 world of wikis, folksonomies, and mashups makes well-planned information architecture even more essential. How do you present large volumes of information to people who need to find what they're looking for quickly? This classic primer shows information architects, designers, and web site developers how to build large-scale and maintainable web sites that are appealing and easy to navigate. The new edition is thoroughly updated to address emerging technologies - with recent examples, new scenarios, and information on best practices - while maintaining its focus on fundamentals. With topics that range from aesthetics to mechanics, Information Architecture for the World Wide Web explains how to create interfaces that users can understand right away. Inside, you'll find: an overview of information architecture for both newcomers and experienced practitioners; the fundamental components of an architecture, illustrating the interconnected nature of these systems. Updated, with updates for tagging, folksonomies, social classification, and guided navigation; tools, techniques, and methods that take you from research to strategy and design to implementation.This edition discusses blueprints, wireframes and the role of diagrams in the design phase; a series of short essays that provide practical tips and philosophical advice for those who work on information architecture; the business context of practicing and promoting information architecture, including recent lessons on how to handle enterprise architecture; and, case studies on the evolution of two large and very different information architectures, illustrating best practices along the way. How do you document the rich interfaces of web applications? How do you design for multiple platforms and mobile devices? With emphasis on goals and approaches over tactics or technologies, this enormously popular book gives you knowledge about information architecture with a framework that allows you to learn new approaches - and unlearn outmoded ones.

Typische Stelle: "The cost of not finding information: How many bad decisions are made every day in you organization because employers didn't find the information they needed. Hoch much duplication of effort results from this disconnect? How many customers do you loose because they can't find the product they want on your website?"
The complete portal design of web-site is nicely elaborated. Different layers like presentation, controller and views are well illustrated in detail.
The architecture development of internet portal might have been standardized with architecture framework ITIL, COBIT, TOGAF to make it even more meaningful covering broad aspect of Enterprise IT.

After reading the first two chapters I was convinced that the authors were on the right track. with web development in its infancy there are no standards for development of web sites that one can go by. This book, while in no way attempting to set or define any standards, attempts to list the principles and approach that an information architect should be taking when starting out on a web design project.
I found the fourth, fifth, and sixth chapters to be the very best. These chapters touch upon Navigation, Labelling, and Searching systems. The chapter on navigation systems was a relevation. Many a time navigations systems make absolutely no sense on even some of the more reputed web sites.
The chapter on Navigation systems is followed by the one on Labeling Systems. The relevation that emerges from this chapter is 'Know your target audience, and be consistent!'.
If I like this book, why don't I give this book 5 stars? Because I feel that because the authors do such a great job of explaing what 'Information Architecture' I was very disappointed by the lack of detailed examples in the book. There is one chapter at the end that deals with a real world example, but that is not enough. Something like the entire layout of a real world web site (or a hypothetical example even) that set out that web site's labelling system, the navigation system, the Searching system, etc.. would have made this book worth its weight in cybergold!
Hence the 4 stars. But still a must read, must have.
Overall, it is a good book for a beginner. But don't forget to also pick up some books focusing on task-based webstie information architecture.
The book describes basic theories of IA in general (i.e. book indexes and tables of contents, libraries, etc.) and the pros and cons of different organization, labeling, and navigation systems. Then Rosenfeld advises on presenting IA to management, etc., managing expectations (yours and others), and gives detailed examples of IA strategies online.
Because it covers a lot of ground, its not necessarily a how-to guide book, but rather is more of a deep introspective of what information architecture (IA) is, as an academic discipline. In that regard, it is quite insightful and offers many good resources of how the field evolved, and where its at today, and what role it plays in the ever changing business community.
If anything, as a result of reading this book, I found that I now have a deeper appreciation for what it takes to create a systems-wide approach towards the organization of information. In particular, an appreciation for what it takes to design information for users to help them find the information that they need.
