Abstract

The UK Business Information Network was formed in 1990 as an independent self-financing co-operative of public, government, and academic libraries committed to delivering quality products and services to their user communities. Promoted as a national resource for business people both within and outside the UK, the Network has subsequently been extended with the introduction of associate membership for commercial information suppliers. In1992 it was awarded formal status as the Business Information Panel of the UK Library and Information Co-operation Council (LINC) with a remit to review, encourage, and facilitate co-ordination of business information provision nationally across all sectors. Its current activities include production of a referral database/directory of expertise and resources; organization of seminars and workshops; negotiation of terms and conditions with suppliers; development of quality of service guidelines; and circulation of a regular newsletter. A recent initiative is the creation of an electronic mail forum using the Joint Academic Network (JANET) for business information specialists in university libraries to exchange views on issues of mutual concern. The UK Business Information Network has also established links with organizations and institutions in other countries, and has served as the model for the formation of an equivalent network in Denmark.
