This edited collection provides a cutting edge overview of issues of key concern for information professionals providing information services in corporate environments.

Corporate information professionals serving the workplace rather than learning communities or the general public face specific challenges and demands, from providing competitive intelligence to managing information in a global environment. International contributors working across a variety of sectors pinpoint the key topics facing the corporate information professionals today and share their experiences and expertise.

    The key topics include:
  • how information professionals/libraries fit into the contemporary workplace
  • managing the corporate intranet
  • the role of the corporate librarian in internal and external marketing
  • gaining buy-in for corporate knowledge and information management
  • the hybrid librarian/systems specialist
  • managing staff and change in a difficult climate, and demonstrating value
  • managing information in a global firm; developing corporate taxonomies at a time of change
  • working with suppliers/licensing for elibraries
  • training end-users
