The USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program (CMGP)'s National Knowledge Bank group, led by Debbie Hutchinson (Woods Hole, MA) and Rex Sanders (Menlo Park, CA), held its second annual workshop at the USGS' Center for Coastal and Regional Marine Studies in St. Petersburg, FL, from April 23 to 25.

The purpose of the workshop, entitled "Building a Knowledge Bank for CMGP," was to gather information necessary to create a preliminary action plan for the CMGP National Knowledge Bank. With the aid of presentations from outside information managers, the workshop participants discussed the immediate and future needs for three key aspects of the knowledge bank: information architecture, information content, and utility of information.

The first part of the meeting provided an overview of work being done outside of USGS in the area of knowledge management. Participating agencies included several centers within the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Geological Survey of Canada, the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The rest of the workshop was spent on organized group discussions. Following the workshop was a discussion led by Steve Eittreim (Menlo Park, CA) about the linkages between the Knowledge Bank and the Synthesis and Assessment projects.
