I. V. Malhan
In the knowledge economy era, the library will play a very crucial role in the further extension and modification of knowledge. The growing need for knowledge management has influenced every component and operation of a library. Knowledge management requires more effective methods of information handling, speedy transfer of information and linking of information with individuals and their activities. It demands library patron centred development of information systems and services and customisation of information at the individual level. This opinion paper briefly outlines the nature and significance of conceptual changes involved in the practices of library management to their transition of knowledge management and discusses the competencies required for managing knowledge resources.
