Introduction

This session will focus on the kinds of technology you ought to be aware of to do IA. We will provide a set of concepts and the products that instantiate those concepts in the following areas:

We will attempt to answer questions that come up in real-world scenarios. For example, say I have a project, I hire an IA... they determine that we need to have a faceted classification system for the site's search engine... great, but do I have the technology in place that can accommodate such a classification system? If not, what are those tools? What works best with what solution, etc.
