Marketing Research: Using Other Libraries

A guide to resources for marketing, including advertising, consumer, company and industry information

Beyond Northeastern

The Northeastern University Libraries provides access to a wealth of resources for business research to our community of users. We also partner with other libraries to extend access to materials we don't own. Don't live near Boston? Your own affiliations may give you access to additional resources and help.

BLC Libraries

The Boston Library Consortium is an association of 17 academic and research libraries located in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island. The links below provide more information on access and the collections of the BLC libraries.

Outside Boston and MA

Don't forget about your local public library - even if your public library is small, check to see if there are additional regional or state networks you can use.

Here are a few public libraries around the country:

Boston Public Library

The Boston Public Library provides many valuable resources to the residents and students of Massachusetts. Be sure to sign up for an eCard in order to access many of their databases from home.

What about Harvard?

A question that I'm often asked is: Can I look at this at Harvard?

The answer is: maybe. And of course, borrowing privileges are mostly limited to those at Harvard. There are many libraries at Harvard University and visitor policies may vary. Please check the access policy of the particular library you wish to visit before you go!

We don't have it?

If we don't have it, we'll try to get it for you! We will request books, journal articles and more from other libraries that do.

North Carolina

Students residing in North Carolina have access to NC Live, North Carolina’s statewide online library service in addition to the use of their local public libraries.
