Transcript of Knowledge Organization and Representation

E-Learning-Coordination, Faculty of Arts
Institute of social and economic history FSW
Knowledge Management Database for the Humanities

From linear databases to Hyperknowledge:
a short History of Knowledge organization Tools
Core Competencies/ Features:
Data Management (Bibliographical References, Citations)
Data-Import: Connections to online library databases and catalogues)
Data-Output: Style-formatted citations and bibliographies

+ Technically well elaborated
- lacking innovation, static structure, linear representation of data (traditional database architecture and design)
Core Competencies/Features:
Based on Reference Management and Data Management: Linking of Knowledge items
Creating cross-linked knowledge spaces based on the Hyperlink-idea: Possibility of associative work (knowledge innovation)
Preparing whole publications, not only bibliographies
Collaborative online Work (Web 2.0) etc.
Open Source-Idea

+ Inspiring and innovative systems
+ Open Source = Big Development Community
- High complexity
- technically improvable
Main Goal/Interest:
Supporting and reproducing thinking, research, analyzing and especially writing processes typical for the Humanities (that nothing gets lost)

Possible Features/ nice to haves ;-)
Creative collaborative Work in self-constructed knowledge spaces
Intuitive design/arrangement of different knowledge components with hypertext-based cross-linking, Gesture-based computing (Touchscreen Drag- and Drop, Pull&Push etc.)
"Artificial Intelligence": Serendipity-Prinzip based on Web 3.0-Technologies (Semantic Web)
Extracting and Organizing of knowledge components to knowledge products
Integration of Word Processors: every content stays linked to the database, not only citations and bibliographical records
What is Litlink and what does it?
Special Features / New Version 4.2 / Community & Support
Record-Import of other Databases like Endnote or BibteX
Integrated Webbrowser: Webresearch and Data Mining
Web-Synchronisation via Litlinkweb

New Version 4.2
New: French Version (english Version available too)
Collaborative Sharing of Projects

Relaunch of www.litlink.ch in 2012
Improved Support Infrastructure (Tutorials, Guidelines, FAQ, Implementation Scenarios, New Discussion Forum)
Litlink, Zotero compared with Endnote
THATCamp Switzerland, Lausanne
Stefan Andreas Keller, 11. November 2011
Instrument for individual and collaborative Data- und Knowledgemanagement
Visualisation of similar content via keywords based cross-linking
Management of complex Knowledge Spaces
Structuring, Categorizing, Organizing Data within projects
Export of Text Drafts for Articles, Presentations, Books etc. (Chapters, Quotes, Comments, Citations, Bibliography separated or alltogether)
Core Competence 1: Data
and Reference Management
Creating, Importing and cross-linking of different Data types (Literature, Pictures, Persons, Locations, Events, AV-Media, Websites etc. pp.
Intuitive generating of standalone and/or child notes, file cards, excerpts, quotes, comments
Export of (structured) Data to word processors or other applications
Style-formatted Export of Content (citations, bibliographies)
Core Competence 2:
Knowledge Organisation and Representation
Knowledge Organization and Representation
in the Digital Humanities:
State of the art, Perspectives, Tools
Interactive User Interface (Minority Report, 2002)
The upcoming knowledge management system?
2. Generation (since 2000): Knowledge Management Systems (f.e. Litlink, Zotero, Citavi, Mendeley etc.)
1. Generation (since ca. 1985, boosted in the 1990ies): Reference Management (Examples: Endnote, BibTex [in Verbindung mit LateX], Literat etc.)
3. Generation (2020??) : interactive and collaborative Knowledge Production and Representation Systems
Which tools do you use? Experiences?
Litlink: Improvement?
Needs: In which direction should it go?
Project: Collection of Articles on the subject Ontology, Semantic Web, Knowledge Organization and Representation
