|Title||Seeding a community of interest: the experience of the knowledge library project|
|Authors||Cox, A., Patrick, K. and Abdullah, R.|
The paper reports on the early lessons learned in the process of forming an online community for librarians from different organisations and sectors to discuss knowledge management. Time, critical mass, diversity of membership, focus, information and communication technology, incentives, concepts of membership, services and leadership were all factors in the slow coalescing of the group as an active self-sustaining network.
