Design inspiration

I'm a fashion designer and use books and journals for inspirations for the products I sell. Am I right in thinking these are allowable?

Design Reference

I also have a library of sewing technique books that I use for reference or manuals - are these allowable?

Business books

I have a few books on marketing, branding, business which I refer to so that I can do my own marketing, branding and business management rather than employ someone to do these tasks for me. Are these allowable?
