A good introduction to cms is Content Management Systems by Phil Suh, Dave Addey, James Ellis, & David Thiemeche. It's very well written and can be read in a few hours. - chris --> -----Original Message----- --> From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org --> [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Emma --> Jane Hogbin --> Sent: Thursday, March 13, 2003 12:43 PM --> To: evolt.org mailing list devoted to the web --> Subject: Re: [thelist] Content Management Book Recommendation --> --> --> On Thu, Mar 13, 2003 at 08:08:51AM +1300, Paul Bennett wrote: --> > I have heard good things about "Information Architecture --> : blueprints --> > for the web" by Christina Wodtke --> > While this covers IA rather than CM, there may be some --> good tips to help --> > you structure the information you are storing backend --> > --> http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0735712506/103 -3104508-2138268?vi=glance If you're going to pick up a book on IA get Peter Morville and Louis Rosenfeld's Information Architecture for the WWW. http://safari.oreilly.com/?XmlId=0-596-00035-9 It is hands down a more complete book on IA. Wodtke's book is nice, but I gave it to my dad (who's a master craftsman and works with wood) as a nice easy introduction to some of what I do for a living. I bought it thinking I'd recommend it to my students and I just found it wasn't up to par with other books in the same price range. emma -- Emma Jane Hogbin [[ 416 417 2868 ][ www.xtrinsic.com ]] -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
