Overview

At the end of 2004, the IAEA had well over 200 scientific and technical information resources (e.g. databases, websites, applications, etc.)

In order to reduce the effort to maintain these (saving time for graphic designers, software engineers, DBAs, and resource custodians alike,) a single portal was conceived and made a priority deliverable for the IT and MIS sections.

As the Lead Information Architect, I was responsible for gathering technical details about the resources, supporting the technical architect, and driving the design behind the user experience.
