As an application of the Web technology, the intranet has quickly been emerging as a new tool for organization-wide information access and communication. The implementation of intranet is based on hypermedia whose distinguishing feature lies in the navigation through links and nodes. This paper describes a navigation design methodology for the intranet. The proposed methodology is based on the two hierarchical information structures: Metainformation Structure (MIS) and Information Structure (IS). A MIS shows the global structure of information to be put on an intranet, and an IS describes the local structure of it. These two hierarchies are used to identify various nodes and links for intranet navigation design
