HBR interviews LB of the BL


Well, this must be a first! The current issue of the Harvard Business Review carries an interview with Lynne Brindley, Director of the British Library.

Do you have a favorite piece from the collection?

I never answer that question. I want people to understand that we’re not a museum. We have a responsibility to our heritage, but our mission is to foster innovation and build future knowledge on top of past knowledge. [Harvard Business Review, November 2007, p 32]
