Knowledge Management (KM) - aims to identify useful and relevant knowledge in a given organization, to organize, merge and synthesize knowledge, and to transform tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge in order to foster efficiency through reuse of knowledge and/or to facilitate creativity and innovation.
Librarianship - aims to manage (identify, organize, preserve, retrieve and disseminate) information in all formats (digital, print, audio-visual, etc.) and to respond to and support client/library users' needs by mediating and supporting access to information.
