In organizations, knowledge workers usually have their own personal folders that store and organize needed codified knowledge (textual documents) in taxonomy. In such personal folder environments, providing knowledge workers needed knowledge from other workers' folders is important to facilitate knowledge sharing. This work adopts recommendation techniques to provide knowledge workers needed textual documents from other workers folders. Experiments are conducted to verify the performance of various methods using data collected from a research institute laboratory. The result shows that the CBF approach outperforms other methods.
