Purpose – The purpose of the paper is to design a model and tools that are capable of representing and handling personal knowledge in different degrees of structuredness and formalisation, and usable and extensible by end‐users.Design/methodology/approach – This paper presents the results of analysing literature and various data models and formalisms used to structure information on the desktop.Findings – The unified data model (CDS) is capable of representing structures from various…

To understand how PKMS may benefit an organization or personal work flow, an understanding of what knowledge is and what Knowledge Management (KM) is and if there is a benefit to coordinating the systems used is needed.
Conceptualizing Personal Knowledge Management Enabler and Personal Knowledge Management Capability
Personal Knowledge Management or PKM is the process and strategy in expanding personal knowledge of individuals. PKM requires individuals to organize information that they obtained from learning or
Personal knowledge and information management - conception and exemplification
The theoretical basis and results of pioneering empirical studies in the PKIM field, carried out in an academic environment, and an analysis of the subject literature, discussions with experts and students, and statistical methods used in creation of thePKIM scale are reported.
Semantics in Knowledge Management
This chapter exemplarily illustrates the role that semantic technologies can play in knowledge management along two dimensions: on the one hand, the degree of formality of explicit knowledge (from tags in folksonomies to F-Logic rules); and on the other hand,the degree of externalization of knowledge.
Study on Mobility of Personalized Knowledge Management
The mobility should be more important for Personal Knowledge Management, however, it’s really difficult to identify the specific focus of users and their approach.
The roles and values of personal knowledge management
The results indicate that PKM is playing important roles in the KM process and both individuals and organizations are benefitting by PKM in improving their competences.

This chapter describes the use of semantic technologies in wiki, which provides intelligent access to heterogeneous, distributed information, enabling software products (agents) to mediate between user needs and the information sources available.
The ubiquitous digital file: A review of file management research
It is concluded that file management is a ubiquitous, challenging, and relatively unsupported activity that invites and has received attention from several disciplines and has broad importance for topics across information science.
Understanding Pims: Personal Information Management Systems
It is suggested that PIMS / IIS / UGIS are only useful insofar as they enable properly informed initial action, action to correct errors, and reflective learning.

This paper outlines a knowledge sharing framework to solve issues with respect to citizen's participation in e-government system, by encouraging user driven activities through the use of emerging technology and ontology based design.


Conceptual Data Structure Tools
This project deliverable presents the idea of Conceptual Data Structures (CDS), a unifying data model for end-user semantic personal knowledge management, and describes two main user interface prototypes based on the CDS framework and their evaluations.
Cost-Benefit Analysis for the Design of Personal Knowledge Management Systems
This paper presents a cost-benefit analysis of PKM – where benefit comes from efficiently finding task-specific, useful knowledge items, and costs come from search efforts as well as externalisation and (re-)structuring efforts for the personal knowledge base.
Semantic Personal Knowledge Management
This part outlines a framework for knowledge management in semantic webs: Semantic Personal Knowledge Management (SPKM), which combines technological, psychological and philosophical research ideas and creates a broad perspective on knowledge management on semantic webs.
iMapping — a Graphical Approach to Semi-Structured Knowledge Modelling
The iMapping approach is described and how it tries to combine and extend the advantages of other approaches, including zooming, to facilitate navigation and to help users maintain an overview in the knowledge space.
Semantic Wikis for Personal Knowledge Management
This work introduces the SemperWiki prototype which offers advanced information access and knowledge reuse and shows how Semantic wikis address the requirements and present a general architecture.
The society of text: hypertext, hypermedia, and the social construction of information
This book discusses hypertext and hypermedia, writers, management and the online environment, and techniques of user message design - developing a user message system to support co-operative work.
