Libraries mean business

London Business Portal - The London Business Portal brings together the resourses of three London library authorities, and those of our partners, together in one place. The London Business Portal has been created by Cultural Community Solutions who operate libraries across Ealing, Harrow and Hounslow and has been developed as part of the Enterprising Libraries initiative. Enterprising Libraries is a joint initiative between the Arts Council, the British Library and Department of Communities and Local Government which encourages the use of library spaces and resources to stimulate economic growth.
