Charles Oppenheim – the Award-winning star of our Editorial column!

At the Internet Librarian International conference held in London in October 2013, Charles Oppenheim was presented with the 2013 Jason Farradane Award.  The award was made in recognition of his outstanding work in the information profession.

Charles Oppenheim’s contribution to the profession has also been recognised in the latest issue of Business Information Review (September 2013).  In a wide-ranging interview we discuss his 40-year career in information management. 

Charles first recognised his interest in desk research when working on his PhD in the late 1960s. His career has seen him working in industry, academia and publishing, with an on-going interest in the legal issues of information and content.  He has been a regular – and much appreciated – contributor to this journal as well as to the broader professional literature.

We wish him the best of luck in his retirement.
