British Library: Business

Volume 463: debated on Monday 23 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what action his Department is taking to promote the Business and Intellectual Property Centre at the British Library as a resource for the business community. (150537)

DCMS operates an arm’s length policy with regard to the bodies that it sponsors, and the promotion of the Business and Intellectual Property Centre is therefore a matter for the British Library Board. They are to be congratulated for their successful delivery of this new resource, which has welcomed over 25,000 users since it opened in March 2006. The Library continues to broaden its public offer, and to build its role underpinning the UK’s knowledge economy.
