information architectures for web sites and intranets can involve a strong undercurrent of politics.

location-dependent.

Social Classification

Varieties of Labels
Contextual links-hyperlinks to chunks of information on other pages or to another location on the same page.

Headings

Labels representing the options in navigation systems

Index terms
Keywords, tags, and subject headings that represent content for searching or browsing.

Labels as Contextual Links
Labels describe the hypertext links within the body of a document or chunk of information, and naturally occur withing the descriptive context of their surrounding text.

Labels As headings
Labels are often used as headings that describe the chunk of information that follows. The hierarchcal relationships betweeen
headings-whether parent, child, or sibling are usually established visual through consistent use of numbering, font sizes, colors and styles, whitespace and indentation, or combination.
