BLC Business Librarianship Speaker Series: Free Business Sources for New England

Friday, January 28, 2022 - 10:00am to 11:30am

In this workshop, Jennifer will introduce you to New England-specific sources in the public domain from the federal government, open access from states, and a few commercially available data sources. Make sure you are using a laptop or workstation, so you can apply search strategies and customize the handouts for your community. By the end of our time, you will be going beyond the Census to describe your community'sbusiness environment or help your entrepreneurs and researchers.
