Knowledge Management Education in Digital Library Learning

Abstract: Knowledge management (KM) is one of the most engaging subjects in the modern knowledge-based economy, and many academic and professional disciplines have adopted KM education into their course programmes. Library and Information Science (LIS) is another academic discipline that has a lot to gain by incorporating the principles of KM. This paper aims to suggest a modular approach to KM education in the realm of Digital Library (DL) learning. This paper is based on a review of the scientific literature of the field, and a mini-case analysis of the ‘International Master in Digital Library Learning’ (DILL) programme – which includes a module on ‘Information and Knowledge Management’ (IKM). The study describes emerging notions of DL and KM, and explores the current state of DL learning and KM education in Library and Information Science (LIS). It analyses a minicase, and shows that the IKM module of DILL comprises dimensions of content, context, people, process and technology. Finally, this paper proposes a framework of KM specialization in the DILL programme which consists of four modules based on the four major perspectives of KM; information, technology, business, and human.
