Although it is easy for many people in an organisation to purchase multiple copies of publications, Special Libraries can reduce the organisation’s expenditure on published information by:

  • Saving unnecessary duplication of information resources within the parent organisation.
  • Saving management staff time by undertaking information research for key staff.
  • Contributing to efficient management by providing “best practice” information on current management processes.
  • Providing published knowledge from around the world to key staff at minimum cost.
  • Borrowing via established national networks of libraries rather than buying, when appropriate.

However, while the Libraries need to be easily accessible to key staff, care should be taken to minimise their occupancy costs especially if their organisations are located in high rental areas
