Abstract

Structural equation modeling (SEM) is a versatile statistical modeling tool which uses in the social sciences research. Recently, in Library and Information Science (LIS) environment, structural equation modeling has gained popularity across many disciplines, due perhaps to its generality and flexibility. Its estimation techniques, modeling capabilities and breadth of application are expanding rapidly. This paper reported a structural equation modeling through a Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) result, which involves 305 lead users at six selected Malaysian university libraries through an online survey. This is to elicit opinion of the lead users on the relationship between Knowledge Management Practice (KMP) and Library Users’ Satisfaction (LUS). AMOS 18 was utilized to analyze research data. Furthermore, the major contribution of the paper is to provide groundwork empirical evidence about knowledge management processes and its relations with Knowledge Management Practice (KMP) at Malaysian university libraries. It is hoped that this structural model could be accepted as a novelty model foundation in knowledge management practice in Library and Information Science environment.
