The new Knowledge Enterprise addresses how to assimilate, develop, manage, and deliver new types of content using technologically enhanced educational methodologies and curricula. It more closely integrates the various academic, library, and administrative functions of the campus, maintains and transfers institutional knowledge assets within the campus, and delivers customized student services to new, expanded user communities. The Knowledge Enterprise addresses the increasingly interconnected functions of libraries, digital libraries, e-learning, content management, portals, administrative computing, and network infrastructure. Beyond the demands entailed in the making of a digital campus IT architecture, the true Knowledge Enterprise will have to address organizational, teaching, community development, and enterprise-wide knowledge management issues.
