Source
Aslib information. 18(1990) no.3, S.91-92
Year

Abstract
Information direct was a service set up as a response to the mounting pressure of business enquiries on Birmingham Public Libraries' Business Information Department. Describes the marketing effort undertaken at the start and covers: the range of services; charging policies; and monitoring (the strategic objective was to break even in 1 year and become self-financing in 3 years).
