There are relations of social networks that can facilitate the communication traffic between the librarians, who can create knowledge sharing behavior as a strategy or way used for a library purpose. This study aims to analyze the dimensions of Social Capital Theory (structural, relational, and cognitive) which use case study in qualitative approach. The number of informants in this study were 7 librarians, and data analysis technique based on the theoretical framework in order to discuss new findings in library setting. The result shows 4 difference of librarians behavior, which are optimistic cognitive behavior, defensive affective behavior, pessimistic affective behavior, and pessimistic cognitive behavior.
