Abstract

One of the reasons I was able to quit my job and launch my research business back in 1991 was my background as a specialised librarian. While I did not appreciate it until later, I learned a lot about how to market information services, manage my time, and negotiate with clients – all skills that both employed and self-employed information professionals need. There are a few books on my book shelf that I consult regularly, and that are of use to any info pro.
