Based on current Government advice on Coronavirus/Covid-19, we regret to inform you that the City Business Library will be closed to the public until further notice. Please check the page for further information and updates. If you have any questions, please email the library and we will do our best to answer you. Thank you.

City Business Library (CBL) members can continue to access information online using their membership number.

CBL staff are working from home while the Library is temporarily closed, and we are continuing to process new memberships. Free "Access" membership will give access to information on starting and running a business and newspaper and journal articles. Paid subscription membership gives additional access to UK company data and international market research.

For further information please contact us.
