Introduction


The world is underway a paradigmatic change from the
Industrial Age to the Information and Knowledge Age


-

In response, a number of countries have been investing in ‘knowledge and
information management’ or ‘e
-
government’ projects.


-

Now sharing knowledge and information among agencies within government


and between government and private and non
-
profit organizations has been a


crucial issue.


In Korea, the issue has been emphasized since the early
1990


-

Korean government issued ‘Cyber Korea 21’ as a blueprint for Knowledge
-
based information nation.


-

Furthermore, President Kim unveiled a nation
-
wide plan to change the quality,
nature, and flow of knowledge and information in his New Year’s Message.

Description of KRM Projects(2)


The primary objectives of KRM projects are:



-

digitizing all valuable and useful knowledge and information to preserve and


utilize at a national
-
level and


-

making a national integrated knowledge base or repositories to allow easy


access to them free of time and location.


-

developing a National Knowledge and Information Portal System(NKIPS)to
integrate all digitized knowledge and information




Thus, the vision of KRM projects is to build a ‘e
-

Korea
armed with knowledge and information network


-

The high
-
speed and robust knowledge and information network will enable
Right person to easily get Right knowledge and information Right time at his
desk : Actualizing 3Rs
