Abstract: Knowledge Management has a multidisciplinary nature. This feature has ensured its influence on a wide range of fields of professional endeavour. The broad interdisciplinary nature of the subject; as well the appearance of multiple perspectives toward it; with the presence of a rang of strategies within various KM environments have brought multiple approaches for designing and conducting KM educational programs and militated against any broad consensus on it. These diversities have also created a competitive atmosphere for KM graduates which in turn intensify the necessity of more properly designed educational programs. The following article reflects present situation of KM programs within LIS schools and looks at both capabilities and requirements of LIS professionals in this new arena.
