Knowledge has become the essential engine for any administrative activity in any institution whatever is its type. It is used by the institution when taking decisions. This has led to a new concept related to knowledge management which integrates knowledge in all the missions of the institution. The university library which offers a service tends to satisfy its users. This necessitates the presence of competent human resources who endeavours to achieve the library objectives. This has led us to ask questions about the role of the information specialist in knowledge management within the university libraries. Identifying the role of the information specialist through his/ her competence, in the development of university libraries is one of the most important aspects of this research. Knowledge management tends to exploit the new ideas and to encourage cooperation to assure progress in change. The human resource and the users constitute an interest in knowledge management. We have chosen the descriptive approach to realise the study. A questionnaire has been administered to a sample of 40 librarians working in Constantine university libraries. This has helped us to obtain significant results that we analysed in relation to the established hypotheses. The questionees state that knowledge is a valuable factor in library management and in achieving its projects. The resources impose them selves as positive elements in the performance of services which main source consists essentially of information necessary for library management and for the execution of its programme under the responsibility of an information specialist. The role of knowledge in the development of university libraries and in reinforcing the information specialist's activity is fundamental within the university in particular and in society in general. The best information professionals in future will be those who could change ambiguous and general data into precise and useful knowledge.
