About the Business Library SIBL


The opening of the completely renovated Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library (SNFL) will be rescheduled later in 2020. The Science, Industry, and Business Library (SIBL) will be relocating to the Business Center at SNFL. Visit the SIBL update page for more information.




The Business Center Library (formerly SIBL) is  currently closed due to the pandemic.

The Business Center is a premier public business library with electronic resources, print materials and services for start-ups and small businesses, for job seekers, investors, and business researchers. Library staff provide roving assistance and research consultations by appointment.  Advisory services are offered on-site by experienced business owners, career coaches, certified financial planners and financial fitness coaches. SIBL offers research collections for onsite use and books to borrow in print and e-formats.
