I’m cleaning up my loft, and came across a book from my undergrad days: “The Organization of Information” by Arlene G. Taylor. This was probably one of my first glimpses into KM, from a bibliographic perspective. Since I was in a program in the School of Library Sciences (now the School of Communications and Information), the book focuses on the need to organize info so that it can be retrieved at a later date for posterity’s sake.
With that background in mind, here are Ronald Hagler’s six functions of bibliographic control:
I started this post thinking maybe those rules need to be updated – but now I’m not so sure they do. I find it frustrating that my own blog is lifted and reproduced (with massive linkspam) by all sorts of characters. When I look for information, I find the same thing – its hard to find relevant valid information.
What do you think? How can we improve upon these bibliographic rules?
