This collection adopts a holistic interpretation of information architecture to offer libraries and information professionals a variety of methods, tools, and techniques that may be used when designing websites and information systems that support workflows. Featuring an international lineup of contributors, with case studies that cover a wide variety of settings, this book
  • discusses research and methods that help libraries and information services use strategic business objectives as a foundation for organizing processes;
  • shows how to support information management functions;
  • opens a new area of research/investigation on the link between information behavior research and information systems and architecture; and
  • uses introductory sections and chapter commentary from the editors to draw the discussions together.
