Information Architecture Resources (Summary of Questions 1-3)

July 18, 2001

We asked respondents three separate questions:

  1. "Which publications do you read regularly (at least once per month) to learn about Information Architecture?"
  2. "To which lists (e.g. SIGIA-L, CHI-WEB) do you subscribe to learn about Information Architecture?"
  3. "Which sites (e.g., weblogs, portals) do you visit regularly (at least once per month) to learn more about Information Architecture?"

For each question, respondents could mention as many resources as they wished.

Because there is so much overlap between these types of resources, we've joined the three sets of answers and combined resources where we felt it was appropriate. For example, we combined references to UIE's Eye for Design, UIE Tips, and the UIE site itself into a single entry for UIE. Perhaps this wasn't especially scientific, but we hope that this makes the results more informative. If time allows, we will eventually make answers to each of the three questions available separately.
