Subject: Course Fliers

Dear Interaction Designers,

At the IXDA event last night, all the fliers for my
information architecture course were picked up; therefore, I am posting
the flier of that course as well as a related one to the discussion
list.

LIS 225 / LIN 225

Classification Schemes and Information Architecture

Fall 2006

Manhattan Campus, 101 Murray St., New York, NY 10007

(718) 990-6161

Course Description: An introduction to classification theory and
information architecture, the study of the way information is organized
in the electronic environment. Library classification schemes are
analyzed, the distinction between classification and categorization is
considered, and folk taxonomies are examined. These concepts are applied
to the analysis and design of the information architecture of Web sites.
Offered by the Division of Library and Information Science (DLIS) of St.
John's University, the course may be taken either for three graduate
credits at regular tuition rates or three continuing education (CE)
credits for $845.

Prerequisite: LIS 203: Introduction to Information Organization, or
permission of the instructor. The course satisfies the requirement for
an advanced course in the organization of information (formerly only LIS
228 or LIS 235 satisfied this requirement).

Course Objectives: The course is designed for students of Library and
Information Science, but may also be of interest to students of Computer
Science and Linguistics. The objectives of the course are: (1) to
prepare the student to evaluate and design classification schemes for
libraries and reference publications such as abstracting services, and
(2) to prepare the student to evaluate and design hierarchical
structures for the organization of information in the electronic
environment.

Instructor: Dr. Bella Hass Weinberg, Professor, has extensive experience
in teaching and working with a wide variety of classification schemes.
She has published extensively on all aspects of the organization of
information, including indexing and thesaurus design. She was a member
of the New York City Information Architecture Salon, now the IA Meetup
Group.

LIS 308 Book Index Structures:

In Print and on the Web

Summer Session 2, 2006:

Thursday and Friday, July 6 - 7, 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

Manhattan Campus, 101 Murray St., New York, NY 10007

(718) 990-6161

Course Description

Introduces the preparation of book indexes, covering
concepts of indexable matter, structure of index entries, cross
references, filing, format, and indexer-publisher relations. Many of
these concepts are applicable to the indexing of electronic resources,
including Web sites. Both manual and computer-assisted techniques are
discussed.

Prerequisite: LIS 204 or LIS 203. One graduate credit.

Objectives

Students will develop a working understanding of:

- the principles of book indexing

- the criteria for evaluation of book indexes

- the effect of various index formats and cross-reference
structures on the usability of indexes

- the advantages of alphabetico-specific indexes to individual
Web sites over taxonomies and keyword search capabilities.

Credit

The course may be taken either for one graduate credit at regular
tuition rates or for 15 hours of Professional Development Credit for
$282.

Professor

The course will be taught by Dr. Bella Hass Weinberg, a Past President
of the American Society of Indexers, former Chair of its Indexer
Education Committee, and the 1998 recipient of its Hines Award for
distinguished service to the profession. Dr. Weinberg has compiled
several highly praised book indexes and consults on the design of
large-scale indexing and thesaurus projects. She has reviewed national
and international standards related to indexing and has published
extensively on indexing theory. Her thorough knowledge of the literature
is reflected in her anthology, Can You Recommend a Good Book on
Indexing?: Collected Reviews on the Organization of Information
(Information Today, 1998). Dr. Weinberg also teaches information
architecture and consults on the interfaces to bibliographic databases
and thesauri.
