Information Usability Poster – ARMA Canada 2013

This is my poster presentation from the ARMA Canada Conference in Saskatoon. It outlines the major shift in emphasis required in order to provide information to users in a way that meets their usability expectations based on an “internet-like” filtering and browsing experience offered by so many commercial websites. The emphasis must shift, as we so often say, from “filing information to using information”. This experience is made possible by way of faceted classification, which in turn requires a well thought out and logical information architecture to provide its metadata. At the bottom is the “Core Information Architecture Model”, which outlines the key metadata requirements for any object within an information system.
