Information and the small company

Abstract
Small and medium enterprises are an important part of the UK economy but little is known about their information needs and use. Presents the rationale and findings of a pilot survey carried out by the Aslib Consultnacy for limited liability companies in the London Home Counties in an attempt to establish their information needs and use. Suggests, while stressing that the results obtained are not definitive, that a successful company might be one that doesn't bother with credit reports, has a professionally qualified librarian that uses information brokers, and has access to the Internet
