Lending Library

As a special benefit to SMPS Connecticut members, we offer an exclusive library of publications devoted to marketing in the A/E/C industry. General business publications with relevance to our industry are also available. Please let us know if you have any recommendations or titles you’d like to see in our library.

Check Out Procedures:

Please send an email to Jessica Osborne  with your selection(s).  A confirmation email will be sent to you with a pick-up date for your materials. If an item is currently unavailable, the requested book will be placed on hold for you and you will be notified when it’s ready for pick-up.

Pick-up/Drop-off Material:

Books can be picked up at BL Companies (355 Research Parkway, Meriden, CT 06450), or at an upcoming SMPS CT event/program. Other arrangements can also be made.

Check-out Requirements:

Each publication is available for loan up to four weeks to any current SMPS CT member from date of check out. In an effort to provide as many members as possible with access to the library materials, a limit of two books per member is permitted at any one time.
