Encompassing islamic information resources to generate a valuable knowledge for purposeful decision making. In: World Congress of Muslim Librarians and Information Scientists 2008, 25th -27th November 2008, Putra World Trade Center, Kuala Lumpur. (In Press) (2008)


The paper highlights how vast Islamic information resources could be re-established into a strong repository knowledge base. Effort of encompassing will enrich the knowledge horizon whereby information resources are added with value. Although Islamic information resources have already been developed in many organizations or communities, however, retrieval of these resources is difficult and decentralized. The cataloging and indexes mechanisms are limited in use which resulted with resources could not easily be accessed when needed. With a knowledge management (KM) application, Islamic information resources can be gathered systematically via the KM synergy which blends expertise of people, technology and process. People or knowledge workers of relevant organizations or communities become the main component to initiate effort supporting with technology and process which produce an excellent output. A reliable and competent KM system will ensure that all Islamic information resources be created for fair use right from its creation, storage, retrieval, disseminate and sharing with proper metadata integration. Thus will render help to any interested parties regardless Muslims or non-Muslims scholars or researchers to gain valuable information for purposeful decision making in obtaining research findings. Without proper knowledge base creation capacity, research effort in the Islamic field might be distorted as information are scattered in pieces.
