At this point, it is important to understand that corporate libraries were not the sole, or even the principal, areas to confront challenges of this type.
It is a fair statement that overall corporate library management did not respond well to the challenges of the early 1990s.
Professional knowledge required to manage a large corporate library has four basic components: (1) information retrieval and reference work, (2) library automation and technical services, (3) information science, and (4) information management.
Analytical ability in corporate libraries is precisely the application of fundamental learning to solve what is essentially a single macro-level problem--managing client expectations with reference to the strengths and weaknesses of sources and delivery systems as well as their associated costs.
Given the increased costs of corporate libraries, the costs associated with misjudgments are substantial.
Unfortunately, library directors do relatively little to articulate the level of analytical ability and business outlook their staff require to make the kinds of judgments implicit in corporate library jobs.
