In Business - Business Information at your Library

Libraries have a range of resources which can help you if you are thinking of starting a business or already run a business.


We have a range of books to support business start-ups in our libraries, specifically at Central (Floor 2), Clifton, Hyson Green and Sherwood Libraries.


COBRA (or Complete Business Resource Advisor) is an online resource packed with information about setting up in business. Including how-to guides, business opportunity profiles, factsheets and information on legal issues and health and safety, COBRA is an essential tool for anyone thinking of setting up a business.

Access it in the library or at home with your library card number.
