Special Libraries: Spring 2010

Instructor:

Mike Koenig

School:

Long Island University

Semester:

Spring 2010

Description:

A study of the characteristics, contexts, and roles of special libraries, and of information work in organizations, both profit and not-for-profit. Topics covered include the organization, the administration, the services and functions provided by, and the financial management of special libraries. Particular attention is given to the relationship between the special library and the organization within which it is embedded.

The relationship between Knowledge Management and Special Librarianship is also examined. The emphasis upon Knowledge Management is substantial because libraries in the corporate sector, the largest chunk of the spectrum of special libraries, are increasingly a component of and are subsumed under Knowledge Management, and to be successful, ―librarians‖ must think of themselves primarily as key players in the organization’s KM effort.
