Library is an institution that collects printed and recorded knowledge, manages it in a particular way to meet the intellectual needs of its users through various ways of knowledge interaction. In 2021, Indonesia provided 4605 active educational institutions, ranging from universities to community academies. All these institutions are obliged to provide library to create a better learning environment, by providing source of references for each course delivered by the institution. This obligation is encouraged by the government by considering library support within the accreditation system. In this accreditation system, a library should allocate books as a source of reference to each course. This establishes a paradigm that library is where we store books and where a member of the institution may borrow, learn, and return those aforementioned books. Today, educational institution deals with not only books but also thesis, dissertation, technical report, training/workshop report, research paper, etc. Authors believe it will be prudent to leave all these documents of knowledge to librarians, by changing the library's paradigm from managing books to managing knowledge. This study proposes a model of Knowledge Management System as a transformation from Library Management System. This study also explains about expected opportunities and benefits after the transformation.
