Getting Started

This guide is meant to help you find information on public companies, major industries, economic and demographic variables -- and related news and literature.  This guide is not designed to be comprehensive.

While conducting your research, you may want to research:

  1. Company and its competitors
  2. Industry in which a company operates
  3. Demographic & economic factors that inform strategic planning 

Research requires analysis and synthesis of information, and no one resource will likely provide sufficient information or data on any given topic. 

Your research may take you to the Harvard Business School library (Baker).  For information, visit:

The HBS librarians are very friendly and helpful!

For more ideas:

  • Chat by entering your question in the CHAT box on the left.

  • Ask a Librarian a question by email.

  • Visit the Langdell Reference Desk located on the fourth-floor of the Law Library. 

  • Call the Reference Desk at 617.495.4516.

  • Email Lisa Junghahn at with questions. 

    Lisa is the HLS Business and Corporate Law research specialist in the library, and she will gladly correspond with you by email -- or make a time to help you develop a research plan.
