Abstract

Organizational memories play a significant role in knowledge management but several challenges confront their use. Artifacts of OM are many and varied. Access and use of the stored artifact is influenced by the user’s understanding of these information objects as well as their context. Topic maps are used in this implementation to represent user cognition of contextualized information. Topic maps allow for access and analysis of stored memory artifacts. The paper presents the design and development of an organizational memory warehouse with web access via topic maps.
