Business and Industry Library
To cooperate with the opening of the Hong Kong Central Library in 2001, part of the City Hall reference collection was transferred to the Hong Kong Central Library. At the same time, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department planned to set up a Business and Industry Library in the City Hall Reference Library to better serve the business and industry sectors as well as members of the general public who are interested in these subjects.
Following the completion of the first phase of the City Hall Public Library Renovation Project, the plan of setting up the Business and Industry Library was realized. The Business and Industry Library, located at the 11th floor of City Hall Public Library, came into operation in September 2003. In addition to the present collection of over 30,000 volumes of business and industry reference books, the Library also stocks materials such as journals, microforms, CD-ROMs and Online databases.
The Business and Industry Library has at present a collection of over 30,000 items covering the following materials:
- Reference books on business and industry: books on finance, banking, securities, insurance, logistics, business management, trade regulations, industrial technology and manufacturing industries, etc.
- Journals on business and industry: the Library is now subscribing some 800 journals in Chinese and English from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and overseas to provide up-to-date information and research reports on business and industry of various countries
- E-databases: the databases provide timely and easily retrievable information on regional analysis, economic indicators, statistical data, market research reports, company profiles, trade regulations, etc.
