Title: تطبيق إدارة المعرفة فى المكتبات الجامعية بولاية الخرطوم : دراسة مسحية
Author: أحمد, هبة مدثر محمدين
Abstract: The concept of knowledge management arises by availing information and disseminating it for employees in libraries and those from outside it and is based on the maximum benefit from the available information in the library, and the thresholds experiences which are dwelling in minds of its employees. One of the most important features of applying this concept is the optimal investment of mind capital and transforming it into a productive power to contribute to the employee’s performance improvement and raising the efficiency of the library. This study aimed to address what is meant by the concept of knowledge management and the extent of applying knowledge management processes, and the constraints of applying these processes at the university libraries at Khartoum State. To achieve these goals the researcher used the surveying method for the categories of the study population which is represented by a sample of university librarians and their subordinates at Khartoum, Sudan for Science and Technology, Al-Neelain, Omdurman Islamic, Sciences and Technologies, Ahfad, Ahlia Omudrman, and Future universities. The researcher used the questionnaire technique to collect the required data which was distributed to 158 respondents, from which 141 sheets were retrieved, representing 90.1% of the sample. The collected data was processed using statistical package for social sciences (SPSS). The study arrived at a number of results: the sample attitude towards the awareness of the concept of knowledge management is characterized by positivity, such that 56.2% of the sample members were aware of the concept, and the majority of the respondents’ opinions about the application of knowledge management processes are characterized by positivity. The respondents assured that the constraints that hinder the optimal application of knowledge management processes are the lacking of relevant training in knowledge management, the insufficient familiarity with knowledge management concept, and the unavailability of supporting organizational communication for knowledge management processes in the library. The study recommended the necessity for spreading awareness of the importance of indoctrinating knowledge management concept, identifying experience thresholds in university libraries and working towards authenticating them by employees who possess a high level of experience and long practicing in work, making regular training sessions inside the library to convey this tacit knowledge, and activating its role as an important source of knowledge resources for the library. And lastly, the researcher provided a proposed model for applying knowledge management in university libraries.
