British Library Industry Guides

January 2010 (British Library)
In order to assist budding entrepreneurs in starting their dream business, the British Library has created a wide variety of Industry Information Guides.

Each industry guide includes lists of printed and Internet sources.

For example, the guide to the Fashion Industry lists:
  • six directories, from the British Clothing Industry Yearbook to the Fabric Buyer's Directory
  • over thirty separate pieces of market research
  • five trade publications
