Knowledge Management in the Major Knowledge Repositories in India

Naushad Ali P. M. and Jafar Iqbal
Abstract—The present paper aims to investigate the growth and development of knowledge repositories in India, impact of knowledge repository on library staff, infrastructure facilities available in libraries for hosting knowledge repositories and barriers in providing knowledge resources to users through knowledge repositories.
Ten KR attached to universities, institutes and other higher learning centres in the country were selected with the help of simple random sampling to conduct the study.
The results of the study show that, all the ten libraries under study have instituted publically accessible digital knowledge repositories. Establishment of knowledge repositories has made significant impact on library staff and eight libraries have adequate ICT infrastructure facilities for hosting knowledge repositories with sufficient number of terminals for their users for searching and accessing knowledge resources. Lack of expertise and lack of training is the major barriers faced by 70 percent of librarians, while providing knowledge resources to their users through KR.
The paper also puts forward some suggestions derived from the analysis of data for further improvement of the management of knowledge repositories.

Index Terms—India, knowledge management, knowledge repositories, knowledge resources.
