Until further notice,  the Central Bank of Malta Library is open to researchers BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.

You may contact the library to make an appointment by email or by calling 2550 4501.

Visitors are expected to have followed the advice of the health authorities before coming to the library, and will be required to sign a declaration stating that neither they nor any members of their household have visited the countries listed by the authorities in the 14 days prior to their visit to the Library.

Requests for copies of e-documents and publications will not be affected.

Opening times are Monday to Friday 08:30 to 15:45.

The Central Bank of Malta Library has one of the most prestigious library collections in Malta as far as banking, finance and economics are concerned, aiming to become the island’s principal hub of debate and research in these fields.

The uniqueness and the size of its collection – with titles dating back to 1921 – make it an invaluable laboratory for scholarly researchers.

Researchers have access to:

  • over 12,000 books
  • academic journals
  • reference material
  • Central Bank of Malta publications
  • Malta government publications
  • CD-ROM databases
  • local newspapers and several online newspapers

A monthly acquisition list is posted, helping you to flag new titles that might be of interest, and our users are also invited to bring to our attention titles that we may have missed.

Our new electronic platform offers extensive search capabilities and includes the library catalogue, an electronic journal database and a collection of e-books. Many publications have, where appropriate, been digitised and can be accessed online by registered users.

Registration is free and users may normally borrow publications for up to three weeks, although reference material cannot be removed from the Library.

Patrons can also visit the Library, situated in Laparelli Building, across the ditch from the Central Bank of Malta’s main building (access from City Gate or Gilormu Cassar Avenue) where specialised library personnel are at your disposal to answer any queries and assist with the use of the electronic collection, answer reference questions and help to locate specific research sources. 

Click on the Register Tab above to sign up. Once the registration has been confirmed, you can use the Login Tab to access the online platform.
