Corporate Librarians

History

Corporations and other businesses have employed librarians for decades. However the career of corporate librarian did not really blossom until the emergence of computers, electronic databases, and the Internet during the past two decades. This new technology allowed companies to access and acquire huge amounts of information. But the information was useless unless it could be organized for ease of use. Companies turned to corporate librarians to sort, analyze, and organize this information. Today, corporate librarians are key members of businesses, and are relied upon to effectively manage large amounts of information—which saves their employers valuable time and money.
