Knowledge management is closely connected with the publications of research results, which are the resources for the circulation of knowledge further on. But the linear, item oriented features of printed materials or electronic emulations of printed publications like PDFs are completely different from the rather “liquid”, digital objects and the networked “flows” we are observing now. In research environments, which exploit the potential of digital media more consequently than researchers did before, the tasks of knowledge management are faced with completely new challenges. Scholarly communication is changing fundamentally and quite rapidly by the new media and by the tools, which are intensively used in the web-based collaboration and working environments of many disciplines. What causes or constitutes these changes and what are the new roles of the libraries as an essential part of the academic support? How do libraries and information providers meet the new requirements of knowledge management? New approaches of knowledge management will be outlined considering the recent results of the project “Future Publications in the Humanities” (Fu-PusH), which is granted by the German Research Society (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) – http://www.ub.hu-berlin.de/fu-push-e
