Can't afford Lexis-Nexis?

Want to look up a company—mergers, lawsuits, earnings…Try the library.

Dunn & Bradstreet, Reference USA, Hoovers—these are probably only a card away.

Before an interview—see if the interviewer is in a trade pub database. See if the president of the company has given a speech on the future plans of the company.

There should be no such thing as a cold call—or a cold interview.

Our library even started a jobs groups because so many people were coming in for help.

Research librarians rule! Hug yours.

Or maybe shake hands?
