Business to business mailing lists

If you want to target new markets we can compile mailing lists for you from our databases. We can search across a range of criteria including location, type of business, turnover or number of employees and then format the information for your individual needs on a spreadsheet.

The Mint database includes companies in Gloucestershire and we can search for any part of the UK. You can use Mint at Gloucester Library. Alternatively contact Ask Us.

Legal information

Legislation does not remain static, Acts are amended, consolidated and repealed and case law interprets and refines the law. To make sure your research is always current we have subscriptions to authoritative and reliable legal resources available to reference at Gloucester Library or use our Ask us enquiry form
