On the surface, Knowledge Management (KM) and library science/information management may not seem like natural partners. And while I might be biased — I come to KM from this perspective — I think the linkages between the two areas are clear.
Library/information science is about connecting people with the information they need. While knowledge management tends to be a bit less clear-cut since one challenge with KM is turning knowledge in people’s heads into something explicit, organized, and retrievable, the focus is on linking people with ideas, expertise, information, data, and knowledge.
