Information Science and Library Studies. Information Science (also information studies) is an interdisciplinary science primarily concerned with the collection, classification, manipulation, storage, retrieval and dissemination of information.
Bridging Book is a children's mixed-media picture-book that blurs the line between printed and electronic books. It consists of a printed book and a digital device, placed side-by-side, with synchronized content. Thumbing through the book's pages triggers the device to display the complementary digital content. The physical book requires no batteries or wires.
In the current version, the printed illustrations on each page of the physical book are extended into the device screen, offering further interaction. The content can be explored both linearly by reading and thumbing the printed book and/or exploring the interaction on the digital device.

I am constantly reminded of the importance of communicating effectively. And I am repeatedly convinced that a simple message delivered in a simple way is most ("Communicating Knowledge Management (KM) to Busy Lawyers" by @LawyerKM
Connections Are the Key…
My favorite (and primary) way to communicate KM to lawyers — and the representation in the KM card, above — is to speak in terms of connections. It’s about “connecting people with people, connecting people with knowledge and information, and the processes, procedures, and technologies required to make those connections.” I like this approach because it is broad, yet meaningful. It allows me to talk about various aspects of KM from culture to technology, without eyes glazing over.
I carry the KM cards with me at work (and elsewhere). When I need to explain KM to someone, I talk about connections. After my elevator speech, I hand them a card as a take-away mnemonic. “Here’s an easy way to remember what we do,” I say, “the KM department’s email address is on the back.”
The more “complex” definitions of KM are fine when talking to people in KM circles and getting into the depths of knowledge management, but when talking to busy lawyers, spouting some convoluted, jargon-bloated, “nonsense” is the surest way to lose their attention. Lawyers are no strangers to jargon. They know it — and will reject it (and you) — the second they hear it.
