Lucidea Press Publishes New Book for Special Librarians & Information Specialists


VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lucidea has announced that knowledge management expert Stan Garfield’s new book, Lucidea’s Lens: Special Librarians & Information Specialists; The Five Cs of KM, will be available in July, 2022. The latest publication from Lucidea Press offers pragmatic advice from Mr. Garfield, a seasoned KM expert and consultant, author of Proven Practices for Promoting a Knowledge Management Program, regular blogger, and popular webinar presenter.

This book is about knowledge management in special libraries and information centers, structured around Five Cs: Capture, Curate, Connect, Collaborate, and Create. These calls to action, presented with detailed examples, provide special librarians and other information specialists with a new way to think about content, products, and services. The fundamentals of knowledge management— applied in a special library or information center setting—benefit the parent organization by offering clear strategic advantage and significant benefits.

Stan Garfield is a knowledge management expert, author, speaker, and innovator in the KM field. He leads the SIKM Leaders Community with over 1000 members globally, and is regularly invited to present at numerous conferences, including KMWorld. He has published over 800 LinkedIn articles on leadership, innovation, knowledge management, communities of practice, enterprise social networks, and social media, and has authored several practical and popular books, including Proven Practices for Promoting a Knowledge Management Program from Lucidea Press—to which this title, Lucidea’s Lens: Special Librarians & Information Specialists; The Five Cs of KM is a natural successor.

Says Ron Aspe, Lucidea’s CEO, “We’re excited to bring you the first book in our “Lucidea’s Lens” series; we believe it’s an essential resource for special librarians and other information specialists building KM capabilities into departmental services, with practical guidance drawn from Stan’s career in knowledge-intensive organizations, and as a consultant, innovator, and advocate.”
