Linking Knowledge Management and LIS at McGill University

Abstract: The objective of this research project is to create a virtual environment to host a community of practice (CoP) through which students, alumni and KM practitioners can interact and share knowledge for continuous learning. The GSLIS KM CoP will provide students with the opportunity to apply the skills and material covered in the KM courses. This novel “living laboratory” will bridge the gap between theory and practice, better integrate knowledge management into the academic curriculum and better equip professionals with a KM skill set as part of their core competencies.
