Are librarians the ultimate knowledge managers?

Abstract: We all know that. After all, haven’t we been the custodians of documented knowledge for centuries? Who could possibly do it better than us? Well, then why aren’t people knocking down our doors, begging us to be the knowledge managers of the organisation? Are they just ignorant of how fantastic we are, or is it possible that librarians aren’t the best people for the job? Most of the academic articles that deal with Knowledge Management (KM) in some way always start by trying to define it. This is because there is no standard or stable definition. I believe this is one of the issues causing confusion.
