Abstract: Heterogeneous information environments may cause many problems for knowledge managers. Common characteristics of these environments are complex work practices, non-standard problem solving techniques, and multiple reporting requirements. This paper presents some of the challenges to knowledge management revealed in a 1998 study of county judges and clerks in rural Texas courts. Both types of actors have complex job responsibilities with multiple facets. Their work practices are highly sophisticated, developed over many decades, and not easily transferable to digital environments. State oversight and reporting agencies play important roles in introducing information technologies into local court jurisdictions. The most important element that is missing from such initiatives, however, is a concern for integrated, practice-driven knowledge management processes. It is important to overcome the limited understanding that oversight agencies, technology vendors, and IT consulting firms have of local courts' work practices and knowledge management. To that end, the authors propose a model for integration of knowledge management work practices in local courts into large-scale state information systems. This model emphasizes the need for a holistic, well-integrated view of local practitioners' work and responsibilities

In: Reference librarian. 1998, no.59, S.113-119.
Abstract: Efforts to create a standard interface for computer networks on either a local or global scale bring the advantage of simplifying bibliographic instruction, but also bring a new set of issues to reading. Argues that online mediums of publication erase genre distinctions, and that reference service should move toward instructing people in mediums not systems
Anmerkung: Part of an issue devoted to the philosophical ideas underlying reference services
3Doty, P. ; Bishop, A.P.: ¬The National Information Infrastructure and electronic publishing : a reflective essay.
In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science. 45(1994) no.10, S.785-799.
Abstract: The US government has been active in the establishment of national and other levels of networking to connect various kinds of persons and groups throughout the country. Briefly examines the history and present state of federal initiatives in electronic networking (particularly the National Information Infrastructure (NII)) and the NREN. Looks at current trends and issues for electronic publishing that come from this federal activity; and identifies topics of fundamental interest to, and with major implications for, national policy that arise from electronic publishing. Explores electronic publishing in the context of federal networking initiatives and considers the implications of the growth of electronic publishing for national policy

In: Navigating the networks: Proceedings of the 1994 Mid-year Meeting of the American Society for Information Science, Portland, Oregon, May 21-25, 1994. Ed.: D.L. Andersen et al. Oxford : Learned Information, 1994. S.71-83.
Abstract: While computing and electronic networking are becoming more ubiquitous in the United States, amny institutions and organizations do not have access to networks, especially to the Internet. Even those institutions with Internet access are faced with a number of problems and obstacles to successful use of computing and telecommunication tools. These obstacles include: unrealistic expectations of the effects of networking on organizational tasks, lack of understanding of the effects of organizational culture and other local circumstances on networking, lack of awareness of individual and organizational socuial effects of networking technologies, and lack of criteria,for evaluating the success of network connectivity. This papers explores these obstacles, including what is known about them, and considers some strategies for avoiding or ameliorating their ill effects
