Abstract

A paper presented at a special conference to celebrate the work of Brian Perry. Records the story of BLRDD and of research management in the UK from 1985-2000. Covers BLRDD, the Library and Information Commission and BLRIC. Considers the lessons to be drawn in moving from a managed research environment to the present more anarchic situation.
