Perspectives on Knowledge Management by K. Madhavan, R.K Bhatt & R. Raman Nair Book Resume:

Perspectives on Knowledge Management The unprecedented developments in Information and communication technologies resulted in the speedy transition of the Industrial society into the Knowledge Society. Now the efficiency in knowledge Management determines the quality, speed and Development in all spheres of human activity. Experts from different academic disciplines have contributed to the growth of this innovative domain of knowledge as well as to the methods and techniques for managing it. Digital technologies make it possible to transfer or access knowledge transcending the limitations of space and time. Knowledge Management processes have started to get much importance along in the manufacturing processes. Knowledge is defined as 'the remembering of previously learned material. This may involve the recall of a wide range of material, from specific facts to complete theories, but all that is required is bringing to mind the appropriate information. Knowledge represents the lowest level of learning outcomes in the cognitive domain'. Knowledge Management is the broad process of locating, organizing, transferring and using the information and expertise within an organization. The overall knowledge management process is supported by four key enablers: leadership, culture, technology, and measurement. In his prophetic words, Management Guru, Peter F. Drucker, observed that "the most important, and indeed the truly unique, contribution of management in the 20th century was the fifty-fold increase in the productivity of the Manual Worker in manufacturing. The most important contribution management needs to make in the 21st century is similarly to increase the productivity of Knowledge Work and the Knowledge Worker." (Drucker, 1999. Knowledge-Worker Productivity: The Biggest Challenge. CMR41.(2). Considering the importance and relevance of this innovative area that has roots in different subject areas such as information science, Decision science, Social and economic activities, manufacturing, health care systems

Reinventing the Library for Online Education by Frederick Stielow Book Resume:

Have changes such as cloud computing, search engines, the Semantic Web, and mobile applications rendered such long-standing academic library services and functions as special collections, interlibrary loans, physical processing, and even library buildings unnecessary? Can the academic library effectively reconceive itself as a virtual institution? Stielow, who led the library program of the online university American Public University System, argues most emphatically that it can. His comprehensive look at web-based academic libraries synthesizes the changes wrought by the Web revolution into a visionary new model, grounded in history as well as personal experience. He demonstrates how existing functions like cataloging, circulation, collection development, reference, and serials management can be transformed by entrepreneurship, human face/electronic communicator relations, web apps, and other innovations. Online education can ensure that libraries remain strong information and knowledge hubs, and his timely book Shows how the origins and history of the academic library have laid the foundation for our current period of flux Identifies practices rooted in print-based storage to consider for elimination, and legacy services ready to be adapted to virtual operations Discusses tools and concepts libraries will embrace in a networked world, including new opportunities for library relevance in bookstore/textbook operations, compliance, library/archival/museum functions, e-publishing, and tutorial services Offers a thorough examination of the virtual library infrastructure crucial for an online learning program, with a special look at the particular needs and responsibilities of online librarians Looks at the evolving relationship between higher education and copyright, and posits how educational technology will bring further changes Bursting with stimulating ideas and wisdom gleaned from first-hand experience, Stielow’s book presents a model for offering outstanding higher education library services in an increasingly online environment.

Technology, Change and the Academic Library by Jeremy Atkinson Book Resume:

Massive technological change has been impacting universities and university libraries in recent years. Such change has manifested in technological developments impacting all areas of academic library activity, including systems, services, collections, the physical library environment, marketing, and support for university teaching, learning, research, and administration. Many books and papers have examined these changes from a technical perspective. However, there is little substantive reflection on what technological change means, and how best to get out in front of it, for the academic library. Technology, Change and the Academic Library systematically reflects on technological innovation, the successes, failures and lessons learned, the nature, process and culture of change, and key aspects including impacts on library staff and users, roles and responsibilities, and skills and capabilities. The book takes an international perspective on the massive change currently affecting academic libraries. The title gives an overview and literature review, considers technological innovation and change management, future technologies and future change, and provides information on further reading. Case studies describe the rationale, aims, and objectives for particular technological innovations, and consider methods, outcomes, and recommendations for the future. Finally, the book reflects back on how technological change can best be wrought in academic libraries. Gives library managers and librarians insight into how best to identify, plan, and implement technological innovation Provides a wide-ranging overview, literature review, and a series of reflective case studies on technological innovation in libraries Emphasises current trends, lessons, and critical issues for putting technological innovation into place Offers an international perspective on technological innovation in the academic library Uses a critical methodology to reflect on what works, what does not, and how managers can apply lessons from real cases worldwide
