Books were (and still are) an “information system.” In today’s thinking however, they would be digital books. In the pre-digital era, a card catalog was the library’s “database.”

Books contain content (words, pictures) that is collected and organized in an accessible and (ideally) logical fashion. Except for the delivery options, not much different than a well-designed website.

  • Content Management – tools, recommendations, implementations
  • Information Architecture – design, usability
