Please pardon the intrusion, but your title, “Knowledge Management and Communication Specialist,” just caught my eye.

I’m a post masters (M.S. Information Sciences) research participant with PNW Research Station, through the ORISE program.

I’m working with our communications and applications group on Sharepoint and how to best use it as a science communications tool.

I cruised around on DigiTop yesterday to review the scholarly literature and found a few things, but would love to find internal, FS / USDA specific info on developing Sharepoint as a science collaboration tool.

I thought perhaps you might be aware of some internal communications regarding USDA FS vision for Sharepoint.

I did a very basic search on both USDA and FS sites, and found very little guidance on features available.

Just thought your role as a Knowledge Manager might have brought some of the info I’m looking for across your desk.

If not, would love to hear any ideas you might have on whom I might reach out to that could have this info.
