The information Architecture Institute is a nonprofit 501(c)6 "Board of Trade."

It was founded in 2002 by pioneers in the still-nascent field of information architecture to promote awareness, provide support and to expand opportunity for people and organizations who're doing information architecture work.  

Our singular focus is to make information clearer and easier to use by improving how people learn, practice and teach information architecture (IA).

Your annual donation to the IA Institute will:

  • Keep the world’s only information architecture-specific library of resources free and accessible to all
  • Allow us to offer newcomers and students free and low-cost access to the IA community and its resources
  • Help fund World IA Day events so that more people all over the world know about information architecture
