According to Morville, Peter & Rosenfeld, Louis in their book Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (2006) 3rd edition, its this:
- The structural design of shared information environments.
- The combination of organization, labeling, search and navigation systems within web sites and intranets.
- The art and science of shaping information products and experience to support usability and findability.
- An emerging discipline and community of practice focused on bringing principles of design and architecture to the digital landscape.
These are four suggestions from the book, but is there a better one out there?
