Collaboration in Knowledge Creation
Room 132A (Phoenix Convention Center)
Cutler Cleveland, Boston University, Boston, MA
The forefront of new information resources has moved beyond the merely digital to include the incorporation of collaborative technologies that allow users to contribute to the creation of the work itself. User-generated contributions range from wikis to tagging to applications such as Flickr. The challenge ahead is to balance user contributions while, creating a trusted repository of knowledge. This session will take a close look at collaborative work such as the Digital Library for Earth System Education and the Encyclopedia of the Earth.
