During thesubsequenttwodecadesasteadystreamofresearchershavepublishedarticles aboutLBDandthe?eldhasmadesteadyprogressinlayingfoundationsandc- ating an identity. It is curiously signi?cant that LBD is not "owned" by any p- ticulardiscipline,forexample, knowledge discoveryortextmining. Rather,LBD researchersoriginatefromarangeof?eldsincludinginformationscience,infor- tionretrieval,logic,andthebiomedicalsciences.
