Managing Knowledge at UTHSCSA: A Shared Vision for the Future

small blue squareIn general, IT has been thought of as being expert at managing data. Libraries have been thought of as being expert at collecting and organizing published information. But in complex organizations there is an increasing need to manage not just data or information, but knowledge. Knowledge is produced by humans who are able to produce information from data, and then merge information and experience into knowledge. Knowledge is often undocumented. It easily can be lost when the individual who has certain knowledge is unavailable. Determining how best to capture and manage knowledge requires collaborative partnerships.

This picture is very interesting. I find people always have potential to do something we do not know. We need manage our knowledge well and exploit the aspect which we do not know.
