Knowledge Management (KM) is an advanced management strategy and has the potential to be extensively adopted in schools to foster the “sharing of innovative practice, avoiding duplication and discouraging the loss of valuable knowledge,” according to Thambi and O’ Toole. (as cited in Chu 2016)

Traditionally, school library is the heart of information management in school where it manages the print and non print collection. With technology, the school librarian can play one of the key roles to implement knowledge management (KM). Information is the basis of knowledge and with knowledge, better decisions can be made.

This workshop provides an introduction to KM with real life examples of how KM is implemented in schools and the prerequisite of introducing KM in schools. We will elaborate on why school library has the best position to promote KM with the senior management. Participants can fill out an electronic questionnaire to evaluate their school’s readiness for KM. There will be a review on the common challenges faced by schools when implementing KM and brainstorm the related solutions. By the end of the session, participants will be able to come up with a follow up action.
