I hope it's OK to actually address the question. Knowledge base design is
important especially in the context of developing modular information. How
users find the right information module becomes a key to usability.
We're into the areas of library science and search engines. I attended an
excellent seminar Dr. Bella Hass Weinberg about Thesaurus Design for
Information Systems, the summary of which is on my Web site at
<http://www.allegrotechindexing.com/article02.htm>. Getting from the words
used by the searcher to the words used in the information modules
represents a key problem.
You may also find the American Society for Information Science and
Technology <http://www.asis.org/> a useful place to start.
