The Institute’s Library – Books

Catalogue entries for the Institute’s books will, where appropriate, be interlinked with those of the British Library, the British Library of Political and Economic Science at the London School of Economics, and other national collections and information bases which hold relevant material, with particular emphasis on ensuring the national availability of unique or rare pamphlets and other items where these are not otherwise available.
