ECPL to Host Presentation for Reference USA Resource

The East Chicago Public Library invests in a variety of research databases for the community to use. On Tuesday, June 18th, a representative from Reference USA will be demonstrating how to use a valuable database specifically for small business owners, entrepreneurs, marketing professionals, and job seekers. The event will be held at 10:30 a.m. at the Main Library located at 2401 E. Columbus Dr.

Reference USA helps users create marketing plans, conduct competitive analysis, raise funds and locate people. Patrons may use Reference USA to gather the information to stay ahead of the competition, create informed business plans and target the location and proximity of competitors. Reference USA even allows you to search for minority businesses by gender or ethnicity. It can be used to find places in the community such as schools, houses of worship, museums, libraries, doctors, and hospitals.  It is also very popular with job hunters that use it to build customized lists of prospective employers by location, industry, or company size and to find real-time job listings from Indeed.com. Please join us at the East Chicago Public Library Columbus Dr. location for a free presentation of this valuable resource. Library resources are easy to use and free to access with your library card.
