    Book Review


This site is designed to help teachers and researchers who choose to adopt a knowledge management perspective in approaching the field of decision support systems. Decision Support Systems - A Knowledge-Based Approach (ISBN 0-314-06510-5) is the first book to emphasize this perspective.  Originally published by West Publishing Company in 1996, the present edition (ISBN 0-324-03578-0) published by Thomson Learning Custom Publishing can be obtained by calling 1-800-355-9983 or by sending an email to CustomSolutions@Thompson.com.

Decision Support Systems: A Knowledge-Based Approach is complemented by an extensive 2-volume reference work on the subject of knowledge management: the Handbook on Knowledge Management published by Springer.  Another recent related book is Business Modelling.
