From: Emerald Group Publishing
Published: Mon Aug 01 2005


Bill Russell, director for academic markets at Emerald, explains, "Our library advisers will play a valuable role in helping us to develop our products so that they continue to be a central and necessary part of any library, business school, or management department. We invited leading academics from a cross-section of institutions around the world to join our panel of library advisers and are seeking a team of around 20 to enable us to accurately gauge requirements of universities across all continents. As well as helping to develop Emerald’s services generally, we hope that our library advisers will help us to build on Emerald Management Xtra, which puts the library firmly at the centre of the business school and presents an entirely new approach to publishing and provides resources for researchers, teaching faculty, librarians and students within an academic institution."

 Linda Ashcroft, Liverpool John Moores University, UK
 David Bickford, University of Phoenix, USA
 Lee Cheng Ean, National University of Singapore, Singapore
 Jill Emery, University of Houston, USA
 Gary Gorman, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
