- the role of the corporate librarian in internal and external marketing
- gaining buy-in for corporate knowledge and information management
- the hybrid librarian/systems specialist
- managing staff and change in a difficult climate, and demonstrating value

- competitive intelligence searching.
Readership: Experienced information professionals working in the corporate sector, including professional services firms, government, NGOs, commercial and industrial companies. The book should be useful to those with a high level of experience and/or seniority, wanting an overview on specific aspects of corporate information management, but will be accessible to more recent entrants to the workplace. It will also be of interest to students of librarianship and those applying for jobs within the sector, as well as the related professions of knowledge management, information architecture and intranet management.
