Abstract

The successes and failures in information and knowledge sharing to increase the number of successes are discussed. The exploitation of information and knowledge sources requires 'logical connectivity' to obtain information from disparate sources which assimilates information meaningfully. The information used in Information Retrieval comes in different formats such as structure data, multimedia, semi-structure and unstructured data. The problems of integrating data from information sources with mixed success reviews four critical research areas such as getting access to information, planning to integrate data across sources, executing integration plans and resolving inconsistencies across sources.
