Abstract. We present a scenario for storage and exploitation of
corporate knowledge assets. At the heart of an intelligent information
infrastructure, the Organizational Memory (OM) holds and brings to beneficial
use manifold kinds of multi- and hypermedia documents, as well as formal
and non-formal knowledge. The scenario is grounded on advanced information
retrieval (IR) technology--knowledge-rich methods for logic-based retrieval
and conceptual indexing are the basis for its design. We focus on information
modeling issues and introduce a comprehensive information-source description
schema. The schema characterizes a knowledge item along the dimensions
form (logical and layout structure, described in the Information Source
Ontology), content (conceptual structure, described in the enterprise's
Product Domain Ontology), and meta-content (context factors in terms of
the Enterprise Ontology).
