Knowledge Organization Systems and Bibliographic Records in the State of Flux. Hermeneutical Foundations of Organizational Information Culture

Sonja Gust von Loh, Mechtild Stock and Wolfgang G. Stock

(Submission #29)


According to hermeneutical findings, all Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS) and all indexing terms in bibliographic records are located in the so-called hermeneutical circle. They are always preliminary and therefore object of permanent change. Understanding is dependent on the fusion of horizons of all involved people (knowledge managers, information architects, and above all users). Therefore all these people have to interact on KOS and records maintenance. It is a task of knowledge management in companies, administrations, etc. to create an appropriate organizational information culture.
