I’m pleased to announce that my new book, Lucidea’s Lens: Special Librarians & Information Specialists; The 5 Cs of KM, is now available. 

Written for librarians and other information specialists and published by Lucidea Press, it is about knowledge management in special libraries and information centers, structured around Five Cs: Capture, Curate, Connect, Collaborate, and Create. These calls to action, presented with detailed examples, provide special librarians and other information specialists with a new way to think about content, products, and services. The fundamentals of knowledge management—applied in a special library or information center setting—benefit the parent organization by offering clear strategic advantage and significant benefits.

Ron Aspe, Lucidea’s CEO, kindly said “We’re excited to bring you the first book in our ‘Lucidea’s Lens’ series; we believe it’s an essential resource for special librarians and other information specialists building KM capabilities into departmental services, with practical guidance drawn from Stan’s career in knowledge-intensive organizations, and as a consultant, innovator, and advocate.” 

I do hope the book will inspire you as you begin or optimize your knowledge management journey. 

Print versions are available for purchase at, but for the moment you can get a free PDF copy in advance, courtesy of Lucidea, here.
