A process pattern for knowledge management within museums
2006 (English)In: Proceedings of CIDOC06, International Committee for Documentation of the International Council of Museums, Gothenburgh, Sweden: Wider perspective- Broader base, 2006Conference paper (Refereed)
Museums are knowledge-dense organizations and an important part of this knowledge is held by professionals working in these institutions. Unfortunately, their knowledge is not easily reachable outside the museums. It is very important that the knowledge is stored for use by future generations and that it can be used by the society. Moreover, we argue that much of this knowledge can be stored in IT systems. Ideas from knowledge management can be utilized in this process. Knowledge management comprises capturing, storing, sharing, and utilising knowledge in an innovative way. We propose a process pattern for knowledge management within museums, influenced by knowledge engineering, where the knowledge should be reachable both by personnel within the museums and the public.
