Academic programs in information and library management have moved far beyond the traditional curricula in librarianship that emphasize sources and rules rather than people, context, and organizations. Three new programs offer studies for students and professionals interested in an expansive approach to the knowledge field or library management. These programs are designed to help information professionals acquire new skills and capabilities and give those who want to jump-start their careers with a basic education on information and knowledge management and in managing large libraries. Columbia University's program is designed for professionals who are interested in entering information and knowledge management fields or who are already working in the field but want to enhance their skill sets. The Information Architecture and Knowledge Management program at Kent State University's School of Library and Information Science is directed by Denise Bedford, Goodyear Professor of Knowledge Management.
