I popped into a couple of libraries last week when I was in London.
The Directory of Social Change (www.dsc.org.uk) has a little library in its premises close to Euston train station. It is a small room, full of books and periodicals on various aspects of the voluntary sector, including fundraising. There were old DSC books that I had never heard of, and a few books by other publishers. You can also access the DSC’s Fundraising Websites. Contact DSC if you want to book exclusive access to these websites.
Afterwards, I popped along to the nearby British Library www.bl.uk. I have my reader’s pass (free), and often pop in when I am in the area. The British Library has some marvellous electronic resources, a few up-to-date fundraising directories on the shelves, and warehouses full of books that you can request (a few days in advance).
Very contrasting styles of libraries and both are marvellous resources … and so close to Drummond Street for when you are feeling peckish!
