In the context of comparing knowledge management processes, in the process of access and knowledge sharing, the libraries of public universities have a better performance than Islamic Azad universities, but in the processes of creation, identification, aggregation, review, and use of knowledge of state-run university libraries differs little from the libraries of Islamic Azad universities.
