This paper identifies and defines the Knowledge Library Application (KLA) class. KLAs are an important class of information resource/knowledge management applications. It will be clear from the definition that KLAs are highly relevant to both the commercial and academic worlds and existing techniques such as keyword and tree classification, On-Line Analytical Processing (OLAP), and Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) do not provide key KLA features. N-Tree-Space (NTS), a technique detailed in this paper, enables the provision of these features and should facilitate the development of a range of KLAs that offer significant advantages over currently available software tools.
