First published in 1897 as The Libraries, Museums and Art Galleries Year Book, this well-established directory has been continuously published for over a century. It remains the most comprehensive and detailed reference work in its field. Now in its 50th edition, The Libraries Directory is an invaluable source of searchable information and contact data on libraries, archives and other information resources in the United Kingdom and Ireland. This new edition retains the same user friendly layout developed in recent editions, and the extensive index includes not just library names, but also different branches, subjects, collections and subscriptions. In addition, the information is provided on a fully searchable CD-Rom, which includes hypertext navigation, browsable indexes, advanced search facilities, bookmarks, printing facilities, e-mail facilities and links to library websites. Full contact details of the libraries are supplied, along with details of access, acquisitions, publications and membership. The Libraries Directory allows you to create your own mailings, print labels and generate mail merges for all your marketing campaigns.

'The Directory is unsurpassed in its wealth of detail on British Libraries and could well be the starting point for those wishing to access these libraries and their services.' (The Australian Library Journal) 'A consistent and concise format throughout. ... The combined index (to libraries, subjects, and collections) exemplifies the Directory's thoroughness and accuracy generally. An editorial preface provides a succinct overview of recent developments in libraries and information.' (ACU Bulletin of Current Documentation)
