Instead of information architecture, sometimes digital archivists need information about architecture to classify assets and assign subject headings and keywords.
Here are two resources to help in building a solid vocabulary as a foundation for an architecture collection. First and foremost, the Getty Vocabularies are the place to start. The Art and Architecture Thesaurus (AAT) is a comprehensive controlled vocabulary or authority list that can be used to assign data values or aid users in retrieval. Truly amazing!
