Dear Sigia-L group:
I have had IA on the brain in such a bad way lately that in the post (below) I
said I had an MS in IA - big oops - I meant Information Sciences. I had no
idea I mistyped until someone wrote and was interested in that program. My
apologies. I am really enjoying the discussions on this list.
Do you all think that IA is more employable with internet/intranets or is it
interchangeable with knowledge management/content architecture of database
design and development?
(MS in Info Sciences) :)
