Reducing White Noise - Towards a common information garbage policy
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Information filtering and aggregation become increasingly vital for academic communities wishing to use productively WWW-based information infrastructures, which in turn suffer from growing information overload bearing entropic traits. New co-operative strategies implying players traditionally acting in separate sectors of scientific information organization - such as libraries, computer center and multimedia centers - may contribute to innovative information garbage policies in academic communities. Ongoing work at Hamburg University illustrate the potential shape of such future institutions for leveraging, filtering and aggregation of information that re-implement the concept of university libraries in a rapidly changing context.
