Recordings from the IA Summit Redux in Washington, DC

This Saturday the DC-IA group organized an IA Summit Redux where many summit sessions were reviewed and discussed. You may download complete audio recordings of the discussions (on tagging, deliverables, theory and web 2.0) from livlab.com. Many thanks to Dan Brown and the DC area IAs for making this possible.

You'll also find the audio for the closing keynote from the last day of the summit; all these recordings make a lot more sense if you check out the original presentations.

AIfIA opens the IA Library

The Asilomar Institute for Information Architecture (AIfIA) is pleased to announce the opening of the Information Architecture Library, an international collection of the best articles, books, blogs, guides, reports, and other resources related to the field of information architecture.

The IA Library was developed by Joanna Markel and Jeff Tang, two graduate students at the University of Michigan’s School of Information. Chiara Fox, Austin Govella, and Peter Morville provided support and served as mentors.

“Jeff and Joanna designed and built a fully-functional user interface and content management system for the Library. That’s quite an accomplishment for a single-semester independent study project!” says AIfIA’s president, Peter Morville.

The IA Library’s collection is still very much under development. We are adding new resources, particularly in languages other than English, to create a more well-rounded collection. In addition, AIfIA is actively seeking a volunteer Library Director to oversee the continued development of this important public service.

If you are interested in volunteering to help with the IA Library, or if you know of a resource we should include, please send your suggestion to ialibrary@aifia.org.

SIGIA-L Temporarily Down

A special message on behalf of Richard Hill about SIGIA-L:
"We're having a horrendous e-mail problem, one which was not recognized until yesterday afternoon. Basically, no messages we send go anywhere. Messages sent to the lists come here, but no one else gets them." Until this is fixed, the list is not distributing messages to subscribers; stay tuned for updates.
