Annual business information resources survey, 1998

Abstract
Reports results of the 7th annual survey of the use of business information in UK libraries, based on a questionnaire survey mailed in Jan 1998 to 817 libraries. The Internet is now a centrally important resource for nearly all UK business libraries and 90% of 1998 survey respondents are currently using it. While some end user services (Internet and CD-ROM) are being taken up, there is little evidence of penetration of end user online services in the organizations employing business librarians. After earlier fearing its consequences, business librarians now view end user access to the Internet with equanimity. Business reference departments in public libraries are facing a serious threat from the Internet. Business information budgets vary widely, from under 5.000 pounds to over 1 million pounds and the most common is the 5.000 to 24.999 pound range. Business libraries have espoused the information age and 50% spend at least half of their resources budgets on electronic data
