Information foraging in knowledge organisations
The concept of information foraging as a model for seeking and finding information was developed by Peter Pirolli and Stuart Card in 1999. Over the last few years it has re-emerged as a very useful way of describing the way in which employees in organisations seek, and assess the value of, information. In his lecture Martin White outlined the features of the concept and illustrated their relevance to KOs by applying them to the use made of enterprise search applications.
The class was delivered via Zoom and was attended by 81 participants from 29 countries. Presentation slides are available to all participants via the KO-ED forum on the ISKO UK website.
