Knowledge Management (KM) has provided Library and Information Science (LIS) professionals with a wide variety of new career opportunities. As a multi- dimensional discipline, knowledge management requires an expanded breadth of knowledge with a mix of different skills. Considerable efforts have been made to compile KM competency profiles for LIS based on an analysis of market needs and on the perspectives of the many groups involved. Drawing on the findings of two research projects, and on these earlier studies, this paper presents a range of professional perspectives on the competencies required for the practice of knowledge managemanagement by LIS professionals and the strength of current curricula in this area.
