Knowledge Management (KM) refers to a range of practices used by organizations to identify, create, represent, and distribute knowledge for reuse, awareness, and learning across the organizations. KM is fast emerging in applications involving large repositories of data and information. Realizing the benefits and potential of KM, organizations are beginning to explore the possibilities of adopting this technology. The next imperative question that comes to mind will be; what information architecture will be the most suitable for a library. Since, a library is regarded as a bank of knowledge, ensuring security is essential. In this paper we present a plausible conceptual framework of managing knowledge for a library. In our case, we have developed an information architecture for the National Library of Malaysia (NLM). The research starts with an examination of three models of KM framework in organizations. From our analysis of these frameworks and the findings of our survey, we developed a conceptual framework for managing knowledge at NLM. This framework has some security features incorporated to meet the requirements of the NLM’s stakeholders. The results of this research work can be used by other libraries and similar organizations which are considering KM adoption and implementation.
