Information Architecture: Summer 2004


Abe Crystal


Chapel Hill


Summer 2004


We are drowning in information: a weekday edition of The New York Times contains more information than the average person was likely to come across in a lifetime in seventeenth-century England. As a result, we are often unable to locate, analyze or use the information we need. Information architecture is an emerging interdisciplinary practice that attacks this problem. Information architects are skilled in the art and science of structuring and classifying information spaces to help people find and manage information. This course will draw on insights from information science and human-computer interaction research, as well as the experience of practitioners, to prepare you to tackle challenging problems in information architecture.
