The Business Librarian

Do you need financial data, SWOT analysis reports, industry profiles, market and consumer data, or other types of information?

If you need any assistance choosing an appropriate source or using the databases, please contact the business librarian. I'd be happy to help you via email (, phone (412-648-1691), or in-person consultation (Hillman Library, Room 206).

You can schedule an appointment with me using the Schedule Appointment button underneath my picture. If none of those times work for you (such as if you work during the day), send me an email and we can work something out.
