Abstract: This article describes a recently introduced module at University College Dublin School of Information and Library Studies (SILS), entitled Information Architecture: Designing the Web. The module provides students with a realistic experience of how information architects apply their skills to produce usable web sites, via a project to produce a documented Virtual Research Environment for information architecture researchers. The article discusses the importance of both information architecture and Virtual Research Environments to LIS education and explains how the module achieves its aims.
