    Librarian's Interface with Knowledge Management

    Quotable Quote:
    "I think all of [us] as academic librarians, whether we work in administration, collection management, reference, or technical services, must take on new roles as knowledge managers." Joseph J Branin, Director of Libraries at Ohio State, quoted in Knowledge Jolt with Jack

    Question with no answer - few CIOs move to become CEO?

    First a quotable quote: "Librarians are being made CIO's less for our technical skills than for our organizational skills and our ability to manage the complex change that is fostered by or linked to technological change." [Source: Managing Technology, Managing Technologists, Shirley K. Baker]

    An image tells a thousand words, in my humble opinion [image courtesy:].

    "Knowing what we know about CIOs -- that is, that most are smart, hardworking, supremely aware of how the business works and increasingly savvy regarding the working of external customers' minds -- the failure of more CIOs to become CEOs has to be one of the biggest mysteries of our age. If any readers can shed light on it, I'd love to hear what you have to say." Thus spake Thornton A. May, in the Computer World magzine, March 2 2007, p. 10
