Abstract

This paper describes an investigation of user-centred design methodologies intended to apply tometadata or information architecture evaluation and deployment. The primary focus of this workis investigation of user conceptual models and comparison with formally architected models. Wedescribe related work, primarily from the domain of information architecture, such as free-listing,contextual enquiry, card-sorting and evaluation, and then describes the design, initial evaluationand practical use of a multi-stage prototyping method designed for elicitation of user knowledgeand concepts of a domain, common conceptual models in that domain and the objects, collectionsand relations between objects considered relevant by users. A simple approach to the analysis ofresults is described.
