Coordinated Information Services For a Discipline- Or Mission-Oriented Community.
Engelbart, Douglas C.
An overview is given of the potential contribution of computerized information services to communities involved with common disciplines or common missions. The author first describes the knowledge workshop--an environment in which knowledge workers do their knowledge work--and then discusses the prototype of the community workshop which has been supported by the Augmentation Research Center at Stanford Research Institute. Among the significant topics included within the scope of the discussion are: 1) collaborative dialogue, 2) document development, production and control, 3) research intelligence, 4) community handbook development, 5) computer-based instruction, 6) meetings and conferences, 7) community management and organization, and 8) special knowledge work by individuals and teams. A set of conclusions comprises the final section of the paper. (PB)
