The UK Chapter of the International Society for Knowledge Organisation

3rd ISKO UK Biennial  Conference

Knowledge Organization - pushing the boundaries

University College London, 8-9 July 2013


Knowledge Organization (KO) is not just a fascinating research domain to attract our foremost thinkers; it also presents practical challenges to each of us as individuals, sorting out the files on our desktops physical and virtual, searching for inspiration via the Internet, or participating in the fora of social media. But there’s a paradox: while KO practices permeate society, the name “Knowledge Organization” is known only to a few. Invisible boundaries separate KO researchers from the practitioners who could benefit from their findings, and also come between distinct fields of application such as records management, web design, librarianship, information retrieval, etc.  his conference aims to explore such boundaries, challenge them and advance our thinking into new territory.
