FaceTag: Integrating Bottom-up and Top-down Classification in a Social Tagging System PDF Document
by Emanuele Quintarelli, Andrea Resmini, Luca Rosati (9/30/2006)
Subject: Faceted Classification, Information Retrieval, Social Context
Language: English
Abstract: FaceTag is a working prototype of a semantic collaborative tagging tool conceived for bookmarking information architecture resources. It aims to show how the flat keywords space of user-generated tags can be effectively mixed with a richer faceted classification scheme to improve the system information architecture. Facets constitute an adaptive classification system capable to represent both a knowledge in movement (like that of collaborative environments) and several mental models at the same time. The blend of tags and facets is able to empower the information scent and berrypicking capabilities of the system.

Faceted classification for community services using CRG standard categories PDF Document
by Claudio Gnoli, Maria Elisabetta Lai, Luca Rosati (7/6/2005)
Subject: Case Studies, Controlled Vocabularies, Experience Design, Faceted Classification, Findability, Information Architecture - Theory
Language: English
Abstract: Faceted classification is increasingly considered as a tool in non-traditional knowledge organization contexts, such as knowledge management and information architecture. These new applications, however, are rarely based on the full theory of facet analysis as developed by Ranganathan and the CRG (Classification Research Group). In this paper we report the creation of a faceted scheme to organize Web resources concerning regional community services, including remote management of cases (e- government).

Information Architecture for Ubiquitous Ecologies
by Andrea Resmini, Luca Rosati (2009)
Subject: Experience Design, Information Architecture - Practices
Language: English
Abstract: In this paper, we describe how crossmediality and bridge experiences are playing a major role in redefining the goals and scope of information architecture as a strategic practice and discipline for the successful design of user experiences, and propose a seven point manifesto for a holistic approach to the design of digital physical human information interactions as ubiquitous ecologies.

The Italian and the English Model of Information Retrieval in the Governmental Websites PDF Document
by Simone Fuchs, Luca Rosati (10/15/2005)
Subject: Case Studies, Classification, Findability
Language: English
Abstract: We have analyzed the Italian and English governmental website to examine their structures and the means they propose to retrieve information. Their approach is totally different. The Italian website employs a hierarchical system which causes a lot of problems. The main reason of these complications is its inflexibility. The English one on the contrary uses an associative model, presenting various viewpoints to describe the individual service. Indeed public services are accessible by means of many different paths. As a matter of fact this kind of organization assimilates significantly the methods of Faceted Classification, which we applied suggesting an alternative way to structure a governmental website.

Pervasive Information Architecture: Designing Cross-Channel User Experiences
by Andrea Resmini, Luca Rosati (4/2011)
Subject: Experience Design, Information Architecture - Practices, Standards & Guidelines
Language: English
Abstract: As physical and digital interactions intertwine, new challenges for digital product designers and developers, as well as, industrial designers and architects are materializing. While well versed in designing navigation, organization, and labelling of websites and software, professionals are faced the crucial challenge of how to apply these techniques to information systems that cross communication channels that link the digital world to the physical world.
