Welcome to the UML Libraries' LibGuides specifically for you, our Difference Makers!

This site has been created as a guide to assist you with your market and business research. On these pages you will find links to subscription databases as well as free WWW sites that we have reviewed and are highly recommended.

Our goal is to create a research library that consistently meets or exceeds your information needs. Your input is required in order for that to happen! Please let us know which of these sites you find the most useful. Also, let us know if you have found other sites you think should be listed here. Include a brief description of the site's contents and why you are suggesting it.


Please feel free to call or stop by the library if you have any questions or need any help with your research!  Use Ask a Librarian or Lydon Library's reference desk (978-934-3213). We are all here to help you!
