|Title:||Libraries as innovative organisations: A review of related literature|
|Authors:||Ochogwu, Michael G|
|Abstract:||The concept of innovation as defined by classical innovation theorists such as Rogers, Shoemaker, Havelock and others are examined in general terms, and related to specific aspects of the theory and practice of modern librarianship. While the basic objective of this paper was to highlight the major trends in the innovating process in library organizations, it is argued that innovations as the introduction and application of new ideas, procedures or processes or the manufacture of new products is not new, the scientific study of such developments in libraries is however, a recent phenomenon. Efforts are made to collocate and thus familiarize interested scholars of library innovations with the literature reflecting the state of the art in this apparently new field.|
