KnowledgeBase - Do you want your own KnowledgeBase for your department?

Are you looking for a way to organize all your documentation and departmental information in a manner that is both secure and sharable with other University of Illinois departments, campuses, and the public?

The University of Illinois KnowledgeBase (KB) consists of Group Spaces (example: all directed to a Unified Space (  

The Unified Space ( receives all public KB documents from all the Group Spaces ( and Group Spaces are composed of campus and department groups from the University of Illinois.

Why would my department/college use the KB?

The KB is an easy and comprehensive application for sharing University knowledge. This is the first University of Illinois application for providing online help to our community of faculty, staff, and students. Another benefit of this KB is that you can share and utilize knowledge from all of the KB partner institutions. KB partners include the University of Chicago, Northwestern University and Southern Illinois University. A one stop shop if you will. The University of Wisconsin-Madison developed and hosts this application and has been using it since 2003. It is a very mature application and a mobile application is also available.
