Digital Libraries to Knowledge Portals: Towards a Global Knowledge Portal for Secondary Schools in Singapore
For digital libraries to remain relevant in the new millennium where the ability to manage knowledge is critical, this paper explores how digital libraries could strategically be evolved into knowledge portals to encapsulate knowledge creation, management, sharing and reusability, features evidently lacking in most conventional digital libraries. Two digital library scenarios of use in education are described and implemented as knowledge portals using G-Portal and the Greenstone software. We hope that the initial work carried out on these two portal-like DLs will eventually form part of a Global Knowledge Portal for Secondary Schools in Singapore. Keywords Digital libraries, information portals, knowledge portals, knowledge organisations, knowledge management.
