"How to do a content inventory"

Content inventories can be daunting tasks if you’ve never done one. Seneb Consulting developed an example content inventory (1) complete with instructions. It can be found on the Information Architecture Institute’s website (2).

The downloadable spreadsheet provides a page of instruction and advice, a page of sample inventory, and a final page showing what an inventory can become when used as part of a content migration project.

This inventory is also featured in Communicating Design: Developing Web Site Documentation for Design and Planning (3), a book by Dan Brown, and Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (4) 3rd edition, by Peter Morville and Louis Rosenfeld.
