This week sees the launch of the British Library’s new digital portal as part of a project to make content more relevant and accessible to users of the Business Management and IP Centre and the management research community.
The website is aimed at an audience of management academics, PhD students and practising managers and the content reflects the main study areas within Management and Business Studies.
We are delighted to have been invited to be contributors to this site which will include content from the origins of the Institute into its contemporary application in current organisational, professional development and research and evaluation work. The site includes early texts to current evaluation methodology and organisational development case studies.
In the site section Business and Management History the Tavistock Institute is included as a leading contributor in the field with an accompanying history that outlines the origins of the Institute and its development as a learning organisation right through to the present day where theory is applied not just in the different work areas but also in the strategic management of the organisation.
This project has been led by Sally Halper, Lead Content Specialist for the Business and IP centre and formerly librarian at the Institute. It in an ongoing project and an important partnership enabling us to share our work among a wider audience.
The British Library’s Management & Business Studies Portal can be accessed here and the Tavistock Institute’s page on the portal here.
