Plenty of books explain how to develop web pages, including pages with all kinds of bells, whistles, and gimcracks.
Rosenfeld and Morville explain how to design web *sites* that work. Anyone who thinks they want to design a web site should read this book and really think about its contents; if the principles described herein were applied intelligently, the Web would be a much nicer, more interesting and more useful place.

This book is amazing. Each chapter succinctly describes the key attributes of good "Information Architecture" - what it is and what it is not. It does involve navigation but not the content. It does involve labeling but not very much creative design.
Especially useful for consultants - sample questions and worksheets to give clients to help you get a better understanding of what they want and help them understand your role?
They show you examples of sites that have bad navigation, labeling etc. and examples of good sites too.
It contains a lot of useful usability information - why frames are bad etc.
Also at this price every web programmer/designer should have a copy.

Today many Website design technologies and rigid content requirements have made Web development a more demanding task. Although there are many fine Website design books around to assist Webmasters, a return to the basics of design layout is in serious order.
Information Architecture for the World Wide Web offers readers the guidance they need to design Websites that are easy to manage, navigate, and expand as mission requirements change. Rather than discussing strict HTML and Web graphics design, the authors focus upon the actual mapping out of Websites to insure that they are properly structured and will deliver content in an efficient and orderly manner.
Rosenfeld and Morville outline the main job tasks of the information architect and the disciplinary background they should possess or cultivate. They cite backgrounds in library science, journalism, engineering, marketing, graphics design, and computer science as essential disciplines to be embraced. When brought together and put into practice they will perform important roles in developing an eye and mindset for successful Web development.
The authors discuss important Website design considerations such as the productive use of screen real estate, navigational bars, frames, pull-down menus, and other features that can be employed to effectively deliver Website content. Although this line of instruction is not the main emphasis of the book, the brief addressing of these features assist readers to gain added perspective of the overall strategy of delivering, you guessed it, Web content!
Readers are instructed to perform thorough research to determine answers to questions such as: What are the goals? What can your clients afford? Who are the intended audiences? Why will people visit a site? What types of content should and should not be part of the site? Answers to these and other questions should be determining factors throughout the entire Web development process.
Readers will find the discussions involving brainstorming extremely helpful. This activity should be of major concern during the Web development process. The use of boards, flipcharts, mockups, design sketches, developing prototypes, metaphor exploration, creating scenarios, and structured blueprints can greatly enhance the entire development process.
Reading this book will be for many a refreshing and stimulating experience. Readers will gain valuable behind-the-scenes insight necessary to successfully design Websites that not only look good but perform well to achieve intended goals. Good HTML, programming language scripts, and flashy Web graphics are not enough. Pick up some solid visionary thinking skills. Highly recommended!

I had been looking around for a book like this for some time now: one that guides me through the crucial conceptual design phase of web site development. Most books on web site design are really about user interface design. This book offers a top-down planning approach to getting from the recognition of a need for a web site through to the final working design. It plugs up a lot of the gaping holes that topic-specific design texts leave open.
The over-riding concern and emphasis in the first section of the book is on how to organize the information on the web site in such a way that the target audience can readily get at it. To this end, the authors focus on three 'systems' that need to be developed, implemented and coordinated on a web site: a navigation system, a labeling system and a searching system. Once these systems are thought through and designed then the rest of the work becomes a matter of filling in the information content, functionalities and the bells and whistles.
Clear, concise and even a bit humorous, this book will definitely give you a peace of mind if you find yourself a bit overwhelmed at times when deciding on just how you will approach building a web site.

Kan man auf Informationen bauen? Ja! Aber nur, wenn das Fundament stimmt!
Man kann sagen was man will, in Amerika machen die Leute was und reden dafür weniger. Das Ergebnis ist dann nicht immer unbedingt der Weisheit letzter Schluß, aber darum geht es ja vielleicht auch garnicht. Sieht man "Information Architekture" in diesem Licht, ist es ein geniales Werk, das vor Augen führt, wieviele Komponenten zu einer Web-Site gehören, die -man wird es nicht glauben- nun einmal hauptsächlich aus Informationen besteht. Dass es dafür nicht das absolute Rezept gibt kann sich ja jeder selbst denken, aber Rosenfeld und Morville geben einem das Gefühl für die Kompelxität und nach dem Buch betrachtet man Web-Sites mit anderen Augen.
Ich empfehle das Buch jedem, de auch nur im Ansatz etaws mit dem Internet zu tun hat, egal ob nun im Designer-, Programmierer- oder Projektbereich. Hätten mehr Leute das Buch gelesen, wäre es manchmal nicht so ernüchernd sich durch die Weiten des WWW's zu klicken. (Dies ist eine Amazon.de an der Uni-Studentenrezension.)

Bereits im Vorwort klären die Autoren über das weitverbreitete Mißverständniss auf, dass "Web-*Site* Design" dasselbe sei wie Web-*Page* Design. In diesem Buch geht es nämlich um ersteres.
Die Autoren - "von Haus aus" Bibliothekare mit einer einer Consulting Firma zum WebSite Design - beschäftigen sich in typisch locker-amerikanischer Art und Weise mit dem Thema Informationsarchitektur großer Websites. Jeder, der mit der Planung neuer oder der Reorganisation bereits bestehender Websites befasst ist findet in diesem Buch jede Menge theoretischen Hintergrund und praktische Informationen zu Themen wie Bildung von Rubriken, Organsisationsschemata, Navigationssystemen, sinnvollem Einsatz von Suchmaschinen etc.
Diese Buch hilft Klarheit im Kopf zu bekommen über die Ziele und Aufgaben einer WebSite. Man wünscht sich, mehr Menschen würden es lesen *bevor* (oder wenigstens während) sie eine WebSite aufbauen!

For myself, this book really helped me find the best way(s) to group and lable content - - something that when dealing with a 'catch all' intranet can get out of hand.
For my boss & co-workers, this book provided me with a better way to present information architecture to them. These are people who think that IA is just something that anyone can go out there and do, whether they have internet developement experience or not. They believe that IA is not really important.
After reading some of this book and taking notes, I was able to present my ideas and the book's ideas in a way that made it clear to my boss and co-workers that IA isn't something that can be skimmed over.
I haven't finished the book yet but already I feel I've gained a bunch of insight and new ideas on how to work the information architecture angle of a site, and from there, work to build a better site.

This book should be essential reading for any person involved in not only large scale site design, but small as well. The concepts they discuss are geared towards companies with 80,000+ pages, but I found myself taking notes on what to improve next time I design a 10+ page site. Don't get this book if you're looking for ideas for the "look" of the site. It doesn't offer any. Instead if gives you ideas on how to increase its functionality, efficiency, and ease of usage -- concepts many of us ignore in our excitement for spinning logos and flaming navbars. Some concepts they discussed were "common sense", but many of them were not, especially when discussing how to organize everyone from the marketing dept. to the artists of a company web site and pre-launch discussion of a site before the designing begins. You'll want this one on the shelf for that next major project.

a DEFINATE ASSET for ANY role in website development- from the project managers, designers, to even developers- it would even be a good book for clients who want results or are working closely with the agency developing content for their site. i am going to ask my boss to buy this book for everyone at work! this book reinforces many basic website organization "rules" while offering many that i never thought of- all to help me have a fresh approach to organizing websites and interfaces each time i begin a new project at work. it teaches you what to look for to constantly learn while working and visiting other sites. i've been to one of louis' seminars and would also reccommend you to go to one!

Put simply, this book was my bible when designing my organization's website. It clearly explains the need for serious information analysis before even putting the first tag on your page. It also details the methodology for organizing content, layout, navigation, structure, and planning search protocols. But most importantly it gave me the tools to go into my "web task force meeting" (the bane of any webmaster's existence) with the tools to get everyone on the same page. The resulting website pleased everyone and thanks to this book, allowed me to design an open-ended structure for easy growth and continued web development.
