    Abstract

    Web information design, or information architecture (IA), is a critical aspect of organisational use of the web to deliver information and to communicate with their clients. It is a relatively new instance of information organisation and, although it draws from traditional practices such as library and information science (LIS), web information architecture has its own characteristics and unique contexts. The practice of web information architecture must forge its own identity. This research paper contributes to a greater understanding of web information architecture as a participatory practice that requires myriad conversations, negotiations and collaborations as it is carried out in large organisations.
