'Strategic Marketing and Communications had a really good year. We held two major events, The Front Page, celebrating 100 years of headlines of newspapers, and this exhibition attracted a record number of school visits and young people. We also had an exhibition called London: A Life in Maps, an exhibition which depicted the history of London according to maps. This was our largest exhibition ever, and collectively we generated over 510,000 visitors for the Library. This was one of the largest percentage increases for any London institution.

The Business and IP Centre certainly went on from strength to strength. We held over 3,000 one-to-one advice sessions, and I am pleased to say have continued to keep the support of both Anita Roddick and Tim Campbell. We launched our Intellectual Property Manifesto at the party political conferences this year, which was the first time we had attended those events.'
