Abstract

This paper looks at the rise of knowledge management (KM) as a theme for the information professional noting briefly the theoretical and intellectual context. The discussion proceeds by developing and offering some structures for analysis and action in terms of developing the KM paradigm in different sectors of application in an African and developing world setting. The paper reflects on some of the currently debated themes at the global and regional level and will explore how information professionals can both profit by and contribute to a wide range of professional, social, cultural and economic debates which characterize the modern society at large (embodied in the state and the market) and its more specific foci the emergent Civil Society (in NGOs and community organizations all set within in a matrix of family, social and citizen relationships).
