Hi All,

I need to buy ONE good IA book for my UX library and am considering either Information Architecture for the World Wide Web by Morville or Information Architecture: Blueprints for the Web by Wodtke.

Any thoughts on which one of those is better to have if I can only get one? Any other recommendations?

thanks in advance for your feedback.

I'd recommend Pervasive Information Architecture, by Resmini and  Rosati.  Came out last year, very deep book.

 

But the other 2 are great, really should get all 3.

I don't understand why you're limiting yourself. Both books are good, and both are on my shelf. They do overlap some, but they also provide unique views on IA.

I would also second Pervasive IA, though it is more theoretical and less hands on. Among my other go-to IA books are Greg Nudelman's Designing Search, Peter Morville's Search Patterns, Jim Kalbach's Designing Web Navigation, and Eric Reiss' Practical Information Architecture.
