The CIOB library offers a collection of construction-related online journals and e-books which can be accessed anywhere in the world, day or night. The library also acts as a gateway for technical enquiries, answering them if possible, or passing them on to our relevant technical specialists where necessary.

To access our resources members can register with the library for an Athens login. Click on the button to your right to register. If you've just joined the CIOB, you will need to wait until your membership card has arrived before registering for the library.

The Library also maintains a reference collection of contracts, standards and some print books and journals at CIOB HQ.  Anyone is welcome to visit the library during office hours to use these resources; please contact us to make an appointment.

Please note that we do not undertake literature research on behalf of members, but the librarian can offer advice on search techniques and how to make the most of our resources.
