Knowledge Management in Education

Knowledge management (KM) is a new emerging field in the academic environment. Many upcoming conferences and seminars at national and International level are on Knowledge Management. Many International Universities are actively participating in KM related activities and doing research. It is now becoming popular in Education field due to need to disclose the intellectual power available in institution for sharing experiences. It has great potential and should have equal and even greater significance for education sector. Knowledge builds on knowledge and past events helps in generating new knowledge.

The main source of generation of knowledge is human efforts which are developed through conducting good educational activities, research activities and generating innovative concepts in the area of interest. All knowledge generating organizations like industries, R and D centers, and higher education academics from colleges to universities are in search of new concepts in their subject of interest and also contribute to knowledge through various means.

They are considered as “Knowledge Houses” where knowledge flows from teachers to students and new knowledge is created. The information generated is covered in different forms and 163 sources like books, journal articles, thesis or dissertations, technical reports, fact finding reports, case studies, patents, development of test methods and standards, different scholarly communications etc. Every academic institution contributes to knowledge. The generated information and knowledge is to be compiled at central place and disseminated among the society for further growth. It is observed that the generated knowledge in the academic institute is not stored or captured properly It is also observed that many a times generated information or knowledge in the academic institute is not known to any one and remains as grey literature, which might be useful if proper recording is maintained in the organization. In fact academic environment is treasure of knowledge but it is not organized properly and hence utility is also lacking and cause for the repetitions of the activity. Knowledge Management (KM) in educational institution makes good sense and a good combination of intellectual output of the academic organization if preserved well using technology. The KM efforts could be monitored by the libraries and disclose it along explicit knowledge to the users, but tacit knowledge compilation is difficult as it is preserved at individual level. But librarian could make better efforts in making available such kind of knowledge with the support of the knowledge developers using technology to capture tacit knowledge generated in the organization. In this role of each and every staff and student is very important as its not sole responsibility of Librarian.
