Personal knowledge management (PKM) is a crucial element as well as complement of enterprise knowledge management (EKM) which has been largely neglected by Enterprise Information Systems, up to now. This paper collects requirements for a specific class of PKM software, which supports personal note taking and the idea of extending the human memory by information management. It introduces the knowledge-cue life cycle which describes how information artefacts can be used for helping to denote, remember, use, and further develop knowledge embodied in people's heads. Based on this life cycle and on a literature study, this paper derives a comprehensive requirements catalogue to be fulfilled by knowledge articulation tools used in PKM. This requirements list can be used as a design specification and research agenda for PKM tool builders, and to assess the suitability of existing tools for PKM.
