Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

This article discusses the position of the information institution as a learning organization in the lifestyle changes of society. Information institutions, such as libraries, archival centers, information centers, museums, have a key role in knowledge management, both in content and information technology. The concept of a learning organization is intended to create highly skilled staff and managers, the ability to work independently and work in teams, and the ability to translate the vision into performance. In the dynamics of people's lifestyles, the institution works to build public awareness of the importance of knowledge gained from the ongoing learning process. People's lifestyles consume abundant information, ranging from neutral or siding with one particular interest, to news and information with fake information. Gramsci declare that hegemony is a practice of oppression by the dominant class to the lower classes by using intellectual capital. Information institutions have the power to resist intellectual hegemony, namely with information literacy programs and lifelong learning, and increased reading interest; apply knowledge management; apply sensors; organize education and training to build information literacy capabilities. Information institutions apply the five dimensions of learning organizations from Peter Senge, namely 1) personal mastery; 2) mental model; 3) shared vision; 4) team learning; 5) system thinking. It can be concluded that the position of the information institution as a learning organization in the midst of the lifestyle dynamics of society is determined by the strongest support lies in human capital, on an individual level, namely on personal mastery and mental models.
