Research Interests
My primary research interests lie in knowledge management (KM) education and practice in the field of library and information science (LIS). I am particularly interested in developing KM programs and competence model for educating knowledge managers. My research also focuses on KM systems, specially the tools and technologies for creating, organizing, distributing and sharing both explicit and tacit knowledge in digital environment. In addition, my research concerns the theory of adoption of innovations, inter- and/or multidisciplinary studies, and emerging disciplines like service science, skills science and knowledge science, etc. My research keywords are
 
Knowledge Management
Digital Library System
Library and Information Science
Knowledge Sharing
Theory of Adoption of Innovation
Human Resource Management
Emerging Disciplines
Interdisciplinary Studies
 
Ongoing Research
A Survey of Knowledge Management Practice in the Libraries of Bangladesh
