Information architecture is the focus of this issue. Our new IA editor, Laura Creekmore, has assembled four articles from prominent practitioners in the field dealing generally with Communicating Information Architecture. We are very grateful to our authors for taking the time to share their ideas and experience.

In our RDAP Review, Lizzy Rolando and her collaborators at Oregon State University, University of Michigan, Pennsylvania State University, Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Oregon report on an analytic rubric to assess the NSF-required data management plans (DMPs). Funded by the IMLS, the rubric is designed “to be a research tool for academic librarians, to enable them to analyze a large body of DMPs from their institution for the purposes of better understanding the practices of the local community.”

Finally, ASIS&T president Sandra Hirsh updates us on the ASIS&T strategic planning effort, set to culminate at the 2015 Annual Meeting.
