An exciting journey awaits you if you step into Walsall Reference Library…

Ever wondered where you can go to for all your information needs? You may think that libraries are only places that stamp out books, but we have so much more to offer. In the harsh economic climate today there are few places that you can go to where you can get all the information that you require under one roof. If you just want to step out from the frenzy of a busy world, you can rest at your leisure over a cup of coffee and a magazine or newspaper, check your email on one of our freely accessible computers, or delve into a magical world of escapism through reading one of our best sellers.

You may ask yourself how a library today can help you with your business requirements. Walsall Reference Library has a wealth of resources at our fingertips. We have a collection of dedicated start-up business books on specific topics such as financial planning, building a brand and understanding the complex world of tax. Even if you are an established and successful business we can help you with any enquiry, even down to accommodation and visitor guides for new employees or for your visiting delegates, and if we don’t hold the information that you require, we often know who we can refer you to.

As information professionals we can help you if you require a mailing list to target specific companies. Currently we subscribe to an online database called ‘Corporate Researcher’ where we can carry out detailed searches on criteria such as industrial sector, number of employees, geographic location and turnover. For a small charge we can provide this information in an electronic format which can be emailed to you. Additionally it may be that you are trying to locate a specific product and are having difficulty locating a local company. Through our hardcopy resources we can carry out the research, making life easier for you.

Searching for good quality information can be daunting and that’s where our dedicated team can help you. We have access to Directors Briefings, split into starter business and then more detailed briefing reports, topics covered range from writing a business plan, buying a franchise, importing and exporting advice, marketing, to where to go to find office premises. We can provide 3 of these titles free of charge to you.

Our access to the Complete Business Reference Advisor (Cobra) gives you detailed profiles and factsheets on different professions from becoming a fitness instructor to running a cake shop, especially useful if you are wondering what business to go into.
