- Reference Specialist
Meron worked in a few reading rooms beforehand as a Library Assistant, which includes the Sciences, Rare books and Music, Manuscripts and Asia and African Studies, before landing a role within the Business and IP Centre as Reference Specialist. She particularly enjoys the market research side of starting a business and watching readers make the most of what’s available in the BIPC, and in doing so minimising their risk for failure.
What’s the one BIPC resource you love to recommend to people?
It's not exactly a resource but I love recommending the Inspiring Entrepreneurs. I believe networking is such a valuable tool for anyone looking to do well in business, and Inspiring Entrepreneurs not only allows you to hear from successful entrepreneurs but it also provides you with the opportunity afterwards during the networking part of the evening to go up to them and ask them questions directly. This is a wonderful opportunity to grow in confidence and develop the necessary skills for business.
What is your favourite part of your role?
The individuals that you meet and being able to help them in their journeys with the wonderful resources that we have and also being inspired by their stories.
Your best piece of business advice?
