Knowledge organization systems and bibliographic records in the state of flux. Hermeneutical foundations of organizational information culture.
According to hermeneutical findings, all Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS) and all indexing terms in bibliographic records are located in the so-called hermeneutical circle. They are always preliminary and therefore object of permanent change. Understanding is dependent on the fusion of horizons of all involved people (knowledge managers, information architects, and – above all – users). Therefore all these people have to interact on KOS and records maintenance. It is a task of knowledge management in companies, administrations, etc. to create an appropriate organizational information culture.
