Knowledge management: A selective guide to resources
The knowledge management (KM) discipline is growing rapidly. One of the best ways to keep up is through sites on the World Wide Web. Larger frames of discourse are better handled through monographs on KM topics. These two categories form the emphasis of this guide to KM resources. (See also references in William SaHady, Knowledge Management: An Overview on page 4.)
