This is an article by TD Wilson which goes in to detail what knowledge management is all about. The author draws a brief dicussion on how the concept information relates or is sometimes confused with knowledge. He further discusses how knowledge can be facilitated and managed within organisations. In short he defines knowledge as as what we know: knowledge involves the mental processes of comprehension, understanding and learning that go on in the mind and only in the mind, however much they involve interaction with the world outside the mind, and interaction with others. It a very interesting article for information and knowledge managers to get more insight on the field.

VRE- Chisima is a research workshop that introduces what a research cycle should include. Attended 28 July 2010 and some of the interesting points i like was the issue of intellectual property and funders, Metadata standards and access points for researchers. The workshop was mainly to develop gateways which researchers can adopt and apply in their research environment.

Im working on my report which is title 'To what extent are digital repositories used in South African libraries?,I am doing research based on the title. This has been a good experience as it has tought me how to compile a research, a literature review and many more aspects such as working on my references. It should be complete by October this year and im looking foward to it being edited and published.
I am doing my Honors in Information science and my main courses include Knowledge management, Information ethics, Information Communication, Information Society and Research methodology. This has been an interesting year for me and im looking forward to graduating from my honors and enrolling for my Masters degree next year :).
I am currently assisting a research group in the CSIR Department of transport on their project COREMA which means Compedium of research Material. It is a document library created mainly for The department of transport research materials. It is created so researchers can access all the materials they need.
