This paper explains our approach to building knowledgebased information agents. Instead of building an agent from scratch, we advocate building an agent by adding knowledge to a framework. Knowledge is classified into three categories - general knowledge, domain specific knowledge and site specific knowledge - which enables knowledge reuse and sharing. The paper details the agent architecture, the components of each category of knowledge and the main functions of the framework.
