Information Specialists at the Intersection of IA and Usability

This is an interesting presentation on the overlap of issues that information architects and usability professionals deal with. The presentation was given by Alison J. Head at the Florida State University School of Library and Information Science. Head gives a brief history of IA and discusses at a high level the relationship of IA to Usability and vice versa in the user experience design process. She notes that bringing interface design competency to LIS is key when information professionals make the shift to working as IAs.
