information services supervisor at Project Management Institute,
Inc. in Newtown Square PA. PMI is embarking on an effort to
redesign the manner in which its knowledge assets are delivered to
PMI members and project management practitioners worldwide. Present
models are traditional publishing and library models, with a website
superimposed on top. Currently PMI's website requires that the user
know a whole lot about PMI in order to figure out where to find
anything, and even then it can be pretty hard. The PMI
Knowledgebase, which I oversee, runs on traditional ILS software,
but is not integrated in any way with PMI website search function.
PMI also has over 200 chapters and SIGs around the world, but no
integrated platform through which they can communicate and exchange
information. So these are some of the challenges we are facing as
PMI grows globally. I am very interested in how effective
taxonomies, CoPs etc.

facilitating just-in-time location of valuable information. I look
forward to much enlightenment through participation in this group.
