Organising Knowledge and Information

Organising Knowledge and Information is one of the top-level categories in the Professional Knowledge and Skills Base (PKSB). It involves organising all types of knowledge, information and other resources including the development and use of tools, strategies and protocols, and enabling these resources to be organised, searched and retrieved effectively. Includes cataloguing and classification, metadata and thesauri, subject indexing and database design.

The PKSB is your map of the knowledge and skills in the library, information and knowledge professions. Use it as a self-assessment tool for professional development and to demonstrate your unique skill set to employers. It is also a framework for skills analysis, staff training and development plans.
