ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the library and information services offered by the Institute of Logistics and Transport. The John Williams Library in Corby, England is an excellent resource that is regularly used by institute members either by visiting or, more usually, by contacting the library by telephone or electronic mail, for their own and their organization's benefit. Members can save themselves valuable time and added expense, by using this resource when researching specific areas of business, management issues and ongoing projects. The reading room in the office of the institute in London, England is popular with members and holds a wide and varied selection of current and back copies of journals, covering the full scope of logistics and transportation.
