Card Sorting - The Book
A book in progress by Donna Maurer. Publisher: Rosenfeld Media. Anticipated publication date: January, 2007
Donna has been writing her weblog, DonnaM, since 2002, and is a Very Sharp Cookie. Donna says that many of the existing resources on card sorting don't answer the majority of questions practitioners face, so she's focusing on card sorting as a practical technique to be used in the design of information environments. As a practitioner who's had to learn most of what I know about card sorting by doing it, I love the focus she's got for this book, and I know Donna can pull it off.
If you have experience running card sorts, you might consider helping Donna by completing a survey on card sorting that she's running.
Donna has written a number of articles for Boxes and Arrows, including a "definitive guide on Card sorting".
Donna is also an active member of the Usability Professionals' Association (UPA), is a local ambassador for UXnet (the User Experience Network), and is very active in the IA Institute.
