Abstract: In recent years there has been a growing interest in the nature of knowledge, its structure, and its utilization. With the advent and proliferation of computers and databases, knowledge has become a commodity embedded in our tools and machines that we use for everyday needs. Knowledge and Knowledge Systems: Learning from the Wonders of the Mind provides key studies in the area of knowledge, its measurement and systems, and a novel approach to the structure of knowledge and its progress.
Knowledge and Knowledge Systems: Learning from the Wonders of the Mind applies to academics, information and knowledge professionals, and people involved in the regulation and policy-making of information and knowledge systems. Knowledge and Knowledge Systems: Learning from the Wonders of the Mind discusses the ubiquitous presence of databases and knowledge systems, data mining, knowledge dispersion and transfer, and a framework of how knowledge is structured and developed.
