Um clássico quando se fala de arquitectura de informação
Desde 2000, um livro que recomendava em cursos de gestão da informação, mesmo numa perspectiva da organização da informação para a Web.

Escrito por bibliotecários, é um excelente texto sobre Ciência da Informação.

Known as the famous 'Polar Bear book' (because of the polar bear on the cover), or the IA bible. I read a library copy of this book in 2006, and then went through my own copy of the 3rd edition again in 2007. It is a very in-depth book into IA and how it applies to the web. There's a lot of material to cover, so it takes a while to read if you want to absorb it all, especially if you never heard of the ideas before. But it's a very useful book, and also serves as a good as a reference while modelling out large sites. Perhaps less useful for fairly small-scale sites, but still appropriate. (If you haven't been exposed to the material before, it also gives you a greater appreciation for library sciences.) ( )

[3rd edition] "Those who already have the 2nd edition might take a look and decide whether they want this edition or to wait for the next - no doubt in another five years there will have been many more changes to incorporate."
[2nd edition] "The first edition of this book could be typified as a 'how to do it' manual: this second edition includes that element, put puts 'doing it' in the context of the organization, prodding the information designer to think more about the organizational and/or business context."
[1st edition] "This is a useful introduction to a complex area of work in the field of Web site design, and it fills a gap."

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

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.
