The Information Environment and Knowledge Portals

  • Brian Detlor
Part of the Information Science and Knowledge Management book series (ISKM, volume 5)


In contrast to the prior chapter, which discussed user concerns in the design and adoption of knowledge portals in organizations, this chapter focuses on the informational context in which portals are utilized. Doing so allows for a unique and insightful perspective on the design and adoption of enterprise portals in terms of their ability to support organizational knowledge work—defined in Chapter 1 to be a set of information-laden activities comprising knowledge creation, distribution, and use.
