Sherman, N.Y. — Knowledge management author, speaker, and community leader Stan Garfield practices what he preaches. To ensure the accessibility and findability of his online collection of Knowledge Management articles and resources, he recently confirmed his intentions to posthumously donate the highly trafficked content to Pioneer Knowledge Services (PKS) for stewardship in perpetuity.
“I have spent much of my career creating and curating this knowledge repository,” Garfield said. “Knowing that Pioneer Knowledge Services will ensure its preservation and accessibility gives me great comfort and inspires me to continue writing and investing in the site’s development.”
Pioneer Knowledge Services is a nonprofit organization that aims to nurture organizations that value knowledge as an assert. Part of its mission includes a general educational focus to create and share knowledge.
“We are deeply grateful for the example Stan has represented in the field of KM and for the example he sets through this gift about the importance of knowledge preservation,” said Edwin K. Morris, founder and president of PKS.
Morris said the organization is eager to accept similar donations as well as financial contributions that make work, such as the preservation of the Garfield archive, possible.
