MetadataShow full item record
Knowledge management systems address a variety of factors, including generation, organization, sharing and application of knowledge. This paper demonstrates the value and applicability of various technology tools, including collaborative workspaces, Web referencing, mailing lists, and Internet portals/knowledge repositories. The experiences of two organizations in Canada, FORREX (Forest Research Extension Partnership) and FORCAST (Coalition for the Advancement of Science ad Technology in the Forest Sector), are used to highlight the benefits of these various technology tools to improve knowledge exchange and help the natural resource sector move towards sustainability.
