Dallas Public Library (Business Science & Technology)

The Business Science and Technology Division is located on the 5th Floor of the Central Library in downtown Dallas. In addition to Sammons Small Business Center we house a comprehensive business, science and technology collection.


We serve as a reference source with the resources and databases you need for information relating to starting, funding or growing a small business.

As a special service to the small business and entrepreneurial communities, we jointly operate the Dallas Business Resource and Information Network with the Dallas Office of Economic Development. 

We can provide information to help you start a small business and conduct your market research through books, websites and databases that you may not be able to access on your own. 

In addition, the librarians at the Business Science & Technology reference desk can help answer specific questions you might have.
