The sample in this research was drawn from all central libraries within comprehensive universities that have been operating at least for twenty years. Questionnaires were sent out to 23 libraries. Findings indicated that team, hierarchical and business patterns of corporate culture are dominant in central libraries. The library staff said that the preferred corporate culture is the team and entrepreneurial pattern. No correlation was observed between the extent of knowledge management implementation and various corporate culture patterns. There was, however, a positive correlation between entrepreneurial/team corporate cultural patterns with the extent of knowledge management implementation. No correlation was observed between individuals’ characteristics (such as education, posting and experience) and the accepted cultural pattern.
