May 21, 2004: Interesting New Newsletter

From KM Connection's Philip Murray, editor of their new bi-monthly (as in six times per year) Barrington Report on Advanced Knowledge Organization and Retrieval (BRAKOR):

The theme of the inaugural issue is knowledge organization and faceted classification. The first issue features the following articles and departments:

  • Why knowledge organization plays a key role in enterprise productivity and competitiveness (Philip C. Murray)
  • Analysis of the role of bibliographic classification in emerging enterprise knowledge organization requirements (Claudio Gnoli)
  • A review of BlueBox's Image Information Toolkit (David Riecks)
  • Perspective on trends evident at the DC2003 conference (Joseph Tennis)
  • A review of Endeca's ProFind Search and Guided Navigation for the Enterprise (Philip C. Murray)
  • The first installment of "The terminology of knowledge organization," an effort to build a reference vocabulary for the multi-disciplinary domain of knowledge organization
  • Upcoming events in knowledge organization (both commercial and academic)
  • News items of interest in the domain of enterprise knowledge organization and integration

The next issue of BRAKOR will focus on the processes of developing and managing enterprise knowledge-organization systems (sometimes referred to as "corporate taxonomies") and will feature the viewpoints and experiences of several leading consultants. Issue 2 will also contain product reviews, more "terminology of knowledge organization," and our regular departments (news and upcoming events).

I'm very excited by BRAKOR's intended coverage, especially the enterprise-themed second issue. And just so you've been warned, the first issue is a bulky 38 page 1.8 Mb PDF file (you'll find it linked from the KM Connection main page. Would be nice to see this in HTML. But I shouldn't complain about something that's good and free.
