Keywords:Knowledge Management System (KMS), Lead Partnership, Library and Information Systems (LIS)
Knowledge management is a process that effectively creates, captures, shares and uses knowledge to improve the organization’s performance. The success of libraries depends on their ability to utilize or share the information and knowledge especially for its staff to better serve the needs of the organization and users. Partnerships open up opportunities for organizations to gain knowledge and leverage strengths. Knowledge partnerships are associations and networks of individuals or organizations that share a purpose or goal and whose members contribute knowledge, experience, resources, and connections and participate in two-way communications. The lead users are providing new product concept and design. Knowledge is of limited value if it is not shared. As a result, libraries are beginning to implement information systems designed specifically to facilitate the generation, integration, sharing and dissemination of organizational knowledge.
