I own a small business and need to do some market research, but we don't have the time or the staff to do it effectively ourselves. Can the library help me with this type of research?

Yes we can, with a service called Research Wizard. Research Wizard is a specialized fee-based service that can help companies with in-depth research needs, such as market research, industry analysis, information on competitors, and more. This service is part of the library's Research Center, and is located on the 4th floor of the Central Library.
