Knowledge Management

Jointly Organized By:

Asia-Pacific Institute of Management, New Delhi

and Delhi Library Association


Advent of Digital Era paved the way of information superhighways and faster data transmission. The ever-expanding spectrum of information and communication technologies redesigned the landscape of every human activity including the library scenario. This digital revolution has had catalytic role in the societal transformation of the industrial society in to the Knowledge Society. The symbiosis of information technology and library technologies heralded a new era of service deliveries in the landscape of librarianship called the era of “Knowledge Management”, which is the explicit and systematic management of vital knowledge and its associated process of creation, organization, diffusion, use and exploitation in pursuit of business objectives. (Skyrme, 2011).

‘The emerging trends in the area of knowledge management such as technology infrastructure, knowledge acquisition and knowledge assimilation have redesigned the façade of library services and this has offered challenges and opportunities for librarians. This seminar will offer an opportunity to experts, practicing librarians and research scholars to deliberate on various aspects of Knowledge management and share their views and concerns in this field.
