Abstract: Designing publicly accessible and distributed information structures and coordinating distributed authors is a major challenge for most organizations. This paper presents a scaleable reference architecture for multi-author World-Wide Web (W3) servers, one important type of a distributed and publicly accessible information system. We introduce the paradigm of "lean production of information" and discuss some problems of data quality regarding W3-servers. Experiences made with a departmental W3- server designed and maintained according to the principles presented are appended as a case study.
