Do you want new services that generate income, deliver real targets, attract new customers and save you money? Business and Learning's outsourcing service is already helping 25 local authority and corporate libraries do just that with the most comprehensive business information service in the UK.

We have been part of the library service in Birmingham since 1919, and we understand the challenges libraries face, because we are one. Our outsourcing deals are priced with public and library ethics in mind. We provide a free library service for Birmingham and as we are not for profit, all revenue raised goes back into the service.

Experience shows that cancellation of some of the more traditional hard-copy pays for our service to provide an authority wide service generating both income and customers. The basic package starts as low as 50 per annum for unlimited use.

Our package includes market research, company reports, credit checks, articles, legal compliance, start up, jobs and director information.

Business and Learning's staff are dedicated to providing business services for you. Their own performance figures (2005) are impressive:
  • 230,706 visitors on premises
  • 35,000 phone enquiries
  • 2.3 million Business and Learning website hits
  • 13,322 attended our business talks, advice session and fairs
  • 32,000 enquiries from community libraries network
  • 737 companies set up in Birmingham in 2005
