[in Mathemagenic, Efimova]: Searching for knowledge as constructing personal learning experience (April 26, 2004) -
"This findings support the argument that knowledge doesn't exist 'out there' (e.g. in documents) and that people need information cues and engagement of others to (re)construct it. A similar observation is made by Cross et. al. (2001: 102) who make a distinction between being informed about what another person knows and 'the willingness of the person sought out to engage in problem solving rather than dump information'. From this perspective 'searching for knowledge' is in fact searching for information and people within an organisation in order to obtain knowledge. Or, 'searching for knowledge' is a process of constructing personal learning experience, selecting learning resources and engaging others as facilitators."
