Knowledge Management for the Information Professional
Medford, NJ, January 17, 2000—Information Today, Inc. (ITI) announced the release of Knowledge Management for the Information Professional, edited by T. Kanti Srikantaiah and Michael E. D. Koenig. Written from the perspective of the information community, this latest book from the American Society for Information Science (ASIS) examines the business community’s recent enthusiasm for “Knowledge Management” (KM), tracing the complex and rapid evolution of the field and delineating its components.
With contributions from more than 30 leading KM practitioners, academicians, and information professionals, editors Srikantaiah and Koenig bridge the gap between two distinct perspectives, equipping information professionals with the tools to make a broader and more effective contribution in developing KM systems and creating a knowledge management culture within their organizations. Particular emphasis is placed on the social and cultural components of KM implementation.
The book is comprised of five major sections: “Overview of Knowledge Management,” “Background & Issues,” “Creating the Culture of Learning & Knowledge Sharing in the Organization,” “Knowledge Management Tools,” and “Knowledge Management Applications.” The book is fully indexed, and its appendices include a comprehensive bibliography of Knowledge Management, a course syllabus, and a thematic model for information-driven management.

and students in library and information science, for professors teaching
a broad range of business courses, for librarians, researchers, and information
professionals charged with creating, organizing, and managing corporate
knowledge assets, and for any professional interested in practical KM business
