About Me

Neil_InfieldSince January 2006 I have worked at the British Library, where I am Manager of the Business & IP Centre. However, the postings here are my own and don’t necessarily represent the British Library’s position, strategy or opinions.

Until 2005 I was manager of Business Information Services (BIS) at Hermes Pensions Management in the City of London. During my time at Hermes I developed the BIS far beyond its traditional library service origins, creating their website, intranet and staff newsletter.

In the few hours of spare time that my commuting and two children allow I enjoy the odd game of tennis, a bit of gardening and skiing when there is snow in the Alps. I recently succumbed to a late mid-life crisis and bought a KR1-S motorbike after a 12 year gap away from motorbikes.

I have been active in SLA Europe for nearly 20 years including President in 2004, and in 2006 I was made a fellow of SLA.
