Personal Information Management
Paul B. Gandel, Richard N. Katz, and Susan E. Metros, The "Weariness of the Flesh": Reflections on the Life of the Mind in an Era of Abundance
EDUCAUSE Review, vol. 39, no. 2 (March/April 2004): 40–51.
This article starts by discussing the well documented problem of how to manage large amounts of information. The interesting part of the article (from my perspective) starts with the heading "Focusing on the individual", where it asks the question "On the other hand, what if individuals were provided with the tools to easily automate, create, and share personal digital libraries or repositories designed to meet the productivity needs of the scholar, administrator, or student—systems designed to organize and facilitate their own research, work, or learning agendas?" It goes on to discuss e-porfolios, advocates "Personal digital repositories" and discusses strategies and tools for linking them so people can find what they need.
