A Brief History of Information Architecture


It’s amazing what you can discover when you apply just a bit of creativity to a Google search.

I was checking out the price on Amazon for A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking when I impulsively decided to substitute “time” with “information architecture” and found a series of papers published by the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals, in mid-2003.

Information Architecture: designing information environments for purpose provides a snapshot of what it was like to be an information architect in that time. It also talks briefly about the history of information architecture, real issues and tips on implementation.

Great stuff.
