An Interdisciplinary Encounter Between Two Knowledge Domains: Library and Information Science vs Knowledge Management

  title={An Interdisciplinary Encounter Between Two Knowledge Domains: Library and Information Science vs Knowledge Management},
  author={Md Roknuzzaman and Katsuhiro Umemoto},
  journal={Information and Knowledge Management},
The main purpose of this study is to develop a framework of the interdisciplinary encounter between two knowledge domains. The study adopted a case analysis of library and information science’s (LIS) encounter with knowledge management (KM). It examines the views of LIS academics and practitioners regarding their awareness of KM concepts, their responses to KM, factors influencing them to respond to KM, and issues related to the incorporation of KM into LIS. LIS has incorporated the core… 


Exploring LIS academics ' responses to knowledge management
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate how and why library and information science (LIS) academics have responded to the advent of knowledge management (KM).
Examination of the historical sensemaking processes representing the development of knowledge management programs in universities: Case studies associated with an emergent discipline
The purpose of this qualitative study was an investigation of the phenomenon of Knowledge Management (KM) program design and development. The interest in KM programs has grown during the last decade
Analysis of the interdisciplinary nature of library and information science
The research findings indicate that there is a relatively clear division of research topics between the studies conducted in various information studies departments and those conducted in other departments that study information.
The implications of knowledge management for library and information science education: a mixed method investigation
This chapter discusses Knowledge Management (KM), a popular topic emerging from the business sector, which has influenced many fields of study, among them Library and Information Science (LIS).
A study of the evolution of interdisciplinarity in library and information science: Using three bibliometric methods
Investigation of interdisciplinary changes in library and information science from 1978 to 2007 reveals that LIS researchers most frequently cite publications in their own discipline, suggesting the use of no single bibliometric method can reveal all aspects of interdisciplinarity due to its multifaceted nature.
Boundary Crossing in Research Literatures as a Means of Interdisciplinary Information Transfer

Contemporary models of interdisciplinary information transfer treat disciplines as such sharply bounded groups that boundary-crossing publication (contributions to disciplinary literatures authored
A comparative study of interdisciplinary changes between information science and library science
The results confirm that the trend toward interdisciplinarity in both information science and library science has risen over the years, although the degree of interdiscipline in information science is higher than that in library science.
A framework for understanding the emerging discipline of information systems
A framework which derives from Heidegger’s concept of a regional ontology informed by the fundamental ontology of Dasein is developed, which contends that a discipline also has DaseIn’S kind of being and reflects on how the framework could contribute towards the understanding of the discipline of information systems.
Educating and Training Library Practitioners: A Comparative History with Trends and Recommendations
The “support staff movement” offers an opportunity for inclusive leadership to create a setting that is responsive to the career and developmental needs of all library staff as well as to created a positive vision of the future of libraries.
Interdisciplinary research: meaning, metrics and nurture
Recognizing prior research and reflection, we offer a definition of interdisciplinary research (IDR) that focuses on integration of concepts, techniques and/or data. We note that this need not entail
