Knowledge Management Explained in Five Disciplines

By Tim Wieringa @ Green Chameleon.
Here is a suggestion to split Knowledge Management into five disciplines.
One: Information Management & Search
* knowledge libraries in large corporations that allow global access to documents across departments and subsidiaries
