The new blueprint : Moving towards university knowledge city.
In: National Seminar on Information Technology in the Library, 3-5 August 2010, Bayview Hotel, Penang, Malaysia.
All knowledge is a form of tradition, whether ingrained in its structure, content, or the value that people attribute to it. Civilized societies have great traditions of knowledge, and the post modern era which discovered print and digitalization gives leverage to the value of those traditions not only in transforming them into intellectual assets but also the means by which they can systematically improve the way society live, work and continue to change in creative and dynamic ways. Cities-their infrastructure, economies and culture are all being transformed by knowledge. The university is a micro knowledge city, and it needs to develop a larger blue print to sustain its growth as a knowledge city. The university must be aware of the importance to capture knowledge assets within the micro-culture and practice of its academic, professional, pastoral, social and cultural services; the sharing of those knowledge assets; and the transformation of those knowledge assets to leverage life experiences of citizens in the campus knowledge-city, and beyond.
