Improving Library Organizational Communication through Intentional Knowledge Management
Communication is one of the most important elements affecting productivity and work climate in any organization. Effective organizational communication can contribute to organizational success in many ways including building employee morale, satisfaction, and engagement; giving employees a voice; reducing the chances for misunderstandings; and improving processes and procedures that ultimately create greater efficiencies. Toward that goal, creating a single internal communications hub can drastically reduce the volume of “noise” employees must wade through to access important information. CSU San Marcos Library has documented its seven-year transformation from decentralized and ineffective communication outlets to a single hub of organizational communication using a knowledge management initiative. Knowledge management is defined broadly as “the conscious process of defining, structuring, retaining, and sharing the knowledge and experience of employees within an organization” (What is knowledge management?, n.d.).
