Summary
Knowledge management as a term has been around for more than a decade, but do we really know what it means? This far-reaching book tackles the thorny question of how to define knowledge management and make it work in the 21st century. It questions our beliefs in the role of the information profession and tells us how to become information workers of the future by providing advice on overcoming the challenges facing the library profession. It develops the idea of the knowledge culture and knowledge work and goes on to expand how information needs to be shared and not hoarded as in the traditional role of libraries as keepers of knowledge . Think for a Living provides a clear and very accessible practical framework for knowledge work. This excellent book provides an insight into the future of the information profession and outlines the skills necessary for the knowledge worker of the future. It is essential for all information professionals and will prove to be a classic work. Book cover.
