What’s the one BIPC resource you love to recommend to people?
I would highly recommend users exploring the Trade Literature Collection which is held in the basements. It's totally unique and can be accessed through contacting our team. In terms of electronic resources, I’d definitely recommend Business Source Complete.
Your best piece of business advice?
I don't really listen to or give business advice! I am a facts person really. The only one I can think of that I would always advise is to make sure you have an exit strategy!
Favourite fact about the British Library?
The Kings Library tower was meant to hold the Library's card catalogues as the building was designed back in the early 70s, by the time it was built in the late 1990s everything was digitised so the Kings Library got a new home!
