What Can IA Learn from LIS? Perspectives from LIS Education

Morville & Rosenfeld’s “Information Architecture for the World Wide Web” positioned IA as an approach to web/interface design that is deeply embedded in, and strongly informed by, the LIS discipline. To re-consider of the impact of the LIS discipline on the IA profession, this presentation (and a subsequent paper) reports the preliminary results of an analysis of syllabi of information architecture courses offered by graduate schools of Library and Information Science in the United States and Canada.

Presented at the Teaching IA workshop at the 2014 IA Summit in San Diego, CA.
