The Knowledge Cafe: Discover Knowledge Through Conversations That Matter



The Knowledge Cafe: Discover Knowledge Through Conversations That Matter

Connecting People . Generating New Ideas . Tackling Issues.

Knowledge Sharing is a key issue for Knowledge Management and for organizational success. But real Knowledge Sharing requires an open mind-set and continues to be a challenge for many organizations. In fact, it can be difficult to even get people to talk openly to one another other about their specific corporate interests, opportunities and responsibilities. 

One way of energizing an organization to take real advantage of conversation and consequent tangible business benefits is the use of Knowledge Cafés. A Knowledge Café is an effective vehicle for opening up conversations and discussions that lead to a deeper understanding of the business world that in turn leads to improved decision making, new ways of working and innovation. 
A Knowledge Café is a tool that is used to share tacit knowledge. It can be used within teams, Communities of Practice or across silos to question entrenched assumptions, to help facilitate learning from others and gain a deeper collective understanding of a subject – through conversation.
It is not just about talking and networking though these are secondary benefits but allowing people to engage each other in "dialogue" with the aim of learning from each other rather than entering into unproductive debate and attempting to impose their views on the other which invariably end in failure and frustration. 

The Library Knowledge Café is intended to allow for the sharing of knowledge, insights, and ideas to allow librarians to gain a greater appreciation or understanding for the topic and the issues raised.

No library has been immune to technological changes – whether academic, public, national or even school libraries. This has made it incumbent upon librarians to review their role, giving rise to a new breed of librarians who have become adept at adapting to the digital environment, using modern tools and systems and providing services as intermediary, facilitator and educator in the business of providing information.
As a consequence of technological advancements however, libraries and librarians have had to cope with the demands of a new set of users – technology-savvy, expecting nothing less than accurate and speedy method of retrieval of info, greater access to numerous networks, possessing skills in coping with the ever-changing technology – resulting in the need to upgrade their own knowledge, skills and competencies, so as to be fully equipped to serve the cyber world. This new breed of librarians are confronted with the need to understand and integrate technology into library practice, function as catalyst for lifelong education, serve as research intermediaries, and as facilitators in searching for information and knowledge in cyber space.
It has not been altogether a smooth transition in role from librarian to cyberarian, with many complex issues confronting libraries and librarians.
