The CII Library at Aldermanbury will close permanently in September 2018. Please email Knowledge@cii.co.uk if you wish to access the print collection after the 31st of August.
All CII members have free admission to the library. If you are not a member and wish to make occasional use of the library or other services from CII Knowledge Services you are advised to join the CII, providing this is for your own information needs.
CII membership gives you full access to CII Knowledge Services, including library admission, lending and access to the online members only area. In all cases access is provided on the understanding that the information and materials made available are for your own use. Other membership benefits include the CII's Journal and discounts on other CII publications.
Non-members - admission charges
If you are not a member of the CII or PFS, you are still welcome to use the library, but admission charges apply - please see the table below for details.
Due to licensing requirements, non-members are not able to make use of the electronic or online resources (however, WIFI is available for general use).
Access to the library is conditional, requiring a valid research purpose. We reserve the right to refuse non-CII members access to the library.
