PKM: Personal Knowledge Management Hilary Clark, Meghan Constantinou, and Marina Kastan Pratt Institute, LIS 653-03, Fall 2010 What is PKM?
PKM is a subset of Personal Information Management (PIM) that deals with finding
and keeping activities.
PKM helps people to make sense of the information they “acquire, organize, maintain, retrieve, use, and control.”
(Jones & Teevan, 2007, p. 3) Why do we need PKM?
To maximize efficiency
To determine what we know
To determine what we lack
“Keeping Found Things Found”http://kftf.ischool.
washington.edu/index.htm (co-founded by William Jones and Harry Bruce, ISchool, University of Washington) Issues and Concerns
Information fragmentation: Multiple, parallel PKM tools can aggravate, rather than alleviate fragmentation.
Privacy: Digital tools have increased the amount of personal information that we store and transmit.
Future of PKM

Cataloguing and Maintaining Ephemera Collections By Tory Barneson and Eve Mayer December 2, 2010 LIS 653-04 Knowledge Organization Professor Pattuelli What is Ephemera? Ephemera can be described as written or printed matter, which is not intended to be kept after it's initial use. Also described as: “Materials of everyday life, generally considered to have little or no permanent value, usually because they are produced in large quantities or in disposable formats." -Joan Reitz Ephemera in the 21st Century Challenges of digitization include cost, copyright and unusual formats. The definition of ephemera is expanding in the digital age. Librarians must think of ephemera in terms of new multimedia such as websites and pop-up advertisements.
Tools for Cataloguing Ephemera Faceted systems offering multiple access points and interdisciplinary access can be found at libraries such as NYPL and Library of Congress but are still developing to accommodate metadata. Cigar Box, 1953. Collection of the New York Historical Society. Record from MoMA's DADABASE for Barnett Newman's Artist File. What is its value? It does retain it's original intended value after use (for example, a theatre ticket), but sustains a different type of value as a primary source for researchers. Institutional Approaches The institutions that we reviewed catalogue and maintain their collections of ephemera differently. For example, NYPL classifies by subject, where MoMA Library classifies by author; ignoring the institution, event, or publisher related to the object.
