thanks Stewart Brower...

More on Web. 2.0 OU-Tulsa is so very fortunate to have Stewart Brower, MLIS, AHIP, as the enthusiastic and charming leader (more than a director) of our library. He has graciously agreed to post his RSS (Web 2.0) slide presentation on his "Professional Notes" blog. This serves as a good review of Web 2.0.

more on open access and intellectual property...

A review of important Open Access information tells us lest not we forget these...

WIPO: World Intellectual Property Organization

More on Open Access

Today, while studying open access, open source and open science, I found a wonderful article at First Monday by Dr. John Willinsky, founder of the PKP and OJS movement. It's worth a read.

The open movement addresses the phenomenon of new technologies running under old economies. So... to clarify this "openness," Wikipedia (yes, the threat to authority "authority") says this:

ALA Core Values good for KM

Although these are targeted at LIS professionals, KMers would be wise to adhere to these, as well. ALA Core Values:

Access: All information resources that are provided directly or indirectly by the library, regardless of technology, format, or methods of delivery, should be readily, equally, and equitably accessible to all library users.

KM goes social

If you're wondering where KM sits in the face of social networking, check out David Gurteen's slide presentation "KM Goes Social" on slideshare.

2.0 phenomenon

David Gurteen has cleverly explained the 2.0 phenomenon in a powerpoint and chart comparing "World 1.0 and 2.0".  Following is a summary of information offered by the ACRL

As noted below... If you are an information professional, can you hold your own in a discussion about these topics?

Communities of Practice: self-organized, deliberate collaboration of people who share common practices and interests and want to advance their knowledge; informal networks where tips are exchanged and ideas generated; fly fishing example

More KM discussion basics

Following are major topics of discussion in KM. As knowledge professionals, can you hold your own in a discussion about these topics?

Open Access (PKP and OAJ, i.e. Stanford University, University of British Columbia, Simon Frasier Library, and Willinsky)

are we untamed?

What does it mean to be a "tamed" knowledge professional? Many a rant have surfaced while I scour the literature, but none has ignited my soul and caused me to come out of hiding more than an article by James Neal entitled "Raised by Wolves". A KM think tank, of which I am a part, is systematically making its way through current issues.
