Watson Library Research Guides

Compiled by the Thomas J. Watson Library of Business and Economics, the research guides listed below provide access to print and electronic resources selected on general business topics and specific industries.


The resources — selected for their authority, ease of use and accessibility — include directories and secondary reference materials, as well as primary sources and broad time series data. The Columbia Libraries subscribe to and recommend the databases listed, which are generally available on a fee basis outside of a library.

Call numbers provided refer to locations within the Watson Library and elsewhere in the Columbia Libraries. These call numbers may be used as topical references in other libraries but may not reflect the actual call numbers in those collections.
