Virtual Reference Desk

BRIC’s business librarian misses you! Stop by the Virtual Reference Desk if you have a quick question for the librarian.

The Virtual Reference Desk will be staffed from 2:00pm to 3:00pm via Zoom. There is no pre-registration for this event. Questions are limited to five to ten minutes. Service is first-come, first-served.

Sample questions:

  • How do I find my competitors in my industry?
  • Where can I find sample business plans?
  • Can I generate a list of businesses in Philadelphia with sales volumes over a million dollars?
  • Which zip codes in Philadelphia have the most people aged 25 to 34?
  • What are the opportunities and trends in restaurants right now?
  • Where can I find help with financing my business?

...and more! Not exactly sure what you’re looking for? Ask the librarian!

If you need more time, or have a more intensive reference question, request a 40-minute appointment with a librarian or email us at
