Information Architecture of the New Library Website

July 14, 2011

A critical step in the development of a large complex website is the definition of the information architecture. The information architecture defines the structure, hierarchy and navigational pathways of a website, and the major categories of content.

As part of the Library Website Redesign project we have developed a sitemap to represent the new site's information architecture. The sitemap is based on extensive user testing and feedback, a detailed content analysis of the current SULAIR web environment, and a series of card-sorting exercises.

This is a big step on the road to our new library website. Click the thumbnail below to view the sitemap.
