Research Help

Many of your class assignments will require you to find high quality information on an industry, company, consumer group, location or other business topic.

Our reference service is switching to summer hours from May 1, 2022. On Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, we are offering remote research help on Zoom. Drop by our Zoom meeting room anytime from 1pm to 4pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to get live research help from a professional business librarian.

If you are looking for in person research help, you can drop by room CLC 220 from 1pm to 4pm on  Monday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons. This in-person service is dependent on librarian availability.
