About the IA Library

The Information Architecture Library is a public service of the Information Architecture Institute. The Library is intended to provide access to an international collection of the best articles, books, blogs, guides, reports, and other resources related to the field of information architecture.

The IA Library is a community-built and -maintained repository for IA (and UX) resources. At its core, the IA Library is a giant set of annotated links to resources with tools for submitting, retrieving, rating, and filtering content.

The IA Library benefits the information architecture community by:

  • Archiving information and making it easily accessible in the future
  • Central place to store and access information
  • Simplify discovery and access
  • Establishing a place were the community gathers, discusses, and enriches itself

Launched in April 2004, the IA Library is still under development. We are actively adding new resources, particularly in languages other than English, to create a more well-rounded collection. If you know of a resource we should include, please send us your suggestion.

The IA Library was created and is maintained by a dedicated team of volunteers.
