Information anxiety by Richard Saul Wurman( Book )

40 editions published between 1989 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 1,610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On t.p.: Information anxiety is produced by the ever-widening gap between what we understand and what we think we should understand. It is the black hole between data and knowledge, and it happens when information doesn't tell us what we want or need to know
Information anxiety 2 by Richard Saul Wurman( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and Spanish and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A decade after the publication of what has become a cult guidebook to understanding, Richard Saul Wurman, in this expanded & updated volume, gives clarity to confusion with new maps for navigating through a stream of bytes which leave us inundated with data but starved for the tools & patterns that give them meaning. In reality there has not been an information explosion, but rather an explosion of non-information, or stuff that simply doesn't inform."--Jacket
The nature of recreation; a handbook in honor of Frederick Law Olmsted, using examples from his work by Richard Saul Wurman( Book )

13 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook utilizes the works and words of Frederick Law Olmsted in communicating recreational needs and desires. The booklet focuses on public outdoor recreation and the importance of assessing environmental considerations when developing recreational areas. The booklet is divided into four sections: The Nature of Recreation, Our Recreational Needs, Identifying Our Needs by Performance Components, and Working with Performance. The first section introduces recreation and the ideas of Frederick Law Olmsted and encourages the reader to evaluate his recreational pursuits. Our Recreational Needs examines the need for exercise, the availability of recreation, and the educational possibilities inherent in nature. The third section describes the component factors of performance--inactive/active, individual/group, young/old, small/large--that must be considered in analyzing recreational needs and determining solutions to recreational problems. Working with Performance provides guidelines for identifying recreational possibilities, analyzing recreational resources, and developing a recreational program and recreational resources. Each section includes photographs, worksheets, and text; line drawings and information on various games, places, and recreational plans are found in the margins of the booklet. An Olmsted bibliography, recreational bibliography, and game glossary are also included. (Author/TK)

Making the city observable by Richard Saul Wurman( Book )

11 editions published between 1970 and 1982 in English and German and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explored in this special issue of "Design Quarterly" are some of the existing data systems which describe, in visual terms, various urban entities: transportation systems, roadways, public buildings, land patterns, historical structures, as well as some new methods for developing physical information that will be widely used in the future. Through these means an individual can acquire information about his surroundings. The materials are designed to elucidate the city, to allow it to become an environment for learning. The city can be made observable by developing a school curriculum about our man-made environment, by designing a clear subway map, or by producing a ballot that people can understand and use intelligently. Approaches that clarify the urban scene can lead to direct environmental learning experiences. Thus, this catalog, with urban communication as its goal, has projects, ideas, books, guides, maps, advertisements, and curricula that offer some means to a better understanding of the environment. The purpose of such a compilation is to show that similar materials could be the basis for the development of urban data centers for the dissemination of information related to the public environment. Making the city observable means making the plethora of public information public. (Bl)
