Explain IA

What is Information Architecture? Why is it important? What does it mean to you? In January 2010, we launched the Explain IA contest and now we've got your answers!

Thanks to sponsors Endeca, nForm, Semantic Studios, User Interface Engineering, ASIS&T, Rosenfeld Media, EightShapes, and O'Reilly Media for making this possible.

Learning Information Architecture

Anyone wishing to learn the craft of information architecture is encouraged to pursue a variety of educational possibilities, including our Recommended Reading, internships, online communities, and formal study. Studies of human-computer interaction, library & information science, knowledge management, and social informatics are also relevant to IA training.
