Implications of knowledge management for library and information science education

Abstract: Knowledge Management (KM) is a holistic, multi-dimensional discipline which overlaps with a number of other disciplines, including Library and Information Science (LIS). As it has emerged as a crucial competency requirement for organisations during the last two decades, considerable interest has built up in the subject of education for knowledge management.

However, the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of the multiple groups involved, along with a complex range of knowledge management principles and practices has demanded educational responses that are both domain specific and at least to some extent, generic, with consequent challenges to both educators and practitioners of knowledge management. This paper looks at current developments in knowledge management education for the LIS profession. It is based on a research project at RMIT University that aims to clarify the state- of- the- art of knowledge management education within the context of Library and Information Science schools.
