Abstract:     
Conclusions:
One of the stated purposes of the research was to determine if the employment of an information professional was a factor in predicting success of a company. We were looking to build a correlation between corporate revenues and the employment of information professionals. The research results were inconclusive for determining whether it is the nature of the business, the type of company or the revenues of the company that govern the employment of an information professional or existence of a library. These factors will be explored later when the companies in the knowledge industry are surveyed and categorized. No correlation was found in revenues to having a library. The research results did find that the public companies surveyed had the highest number of companies with libraries in the top twenty-five companies. Interestingly, libraries were found in the private companies distributed across the top one hundred. It is surmised that once a company goes public, government and stockholder rules and regulations somehow change the need for libraries and organization of information.
