The library plays a central role in facilitating access to knowledge and being a center in what is currently known as knowledge management. Libraries that are culturally subject to rigid rules and identic with a bureaucratic atmosphere face a high challenge in innovating. The purpose of this paper is to explore the publication development on innovation management in the library. The method used is a bibliometric analysis of publications on innovation in a library context, which is then analyzed using the innovation management perspective. The analysis results identified five clusters: innovation culture, technological innovation, innovative human resources, knowledge management, and e-learning. These clusters are a representation of some of the elements of innovation management. This study contributes to the systematic mapping of innovation management in the library context that has not been closely studied before.
