Business Librarian Introduction

Hello! I'm Katy Tucker, and I am the library liaison to the Williams College of Business. I am available to support your research as you complete your degree program. My contact information is listed on the left and can also be found on the University Library's Ask a Librarian page. Review the above tabs to help you get started with research, see available databases, and find additional research guides by topic.

There are many library resources available to support your research including databases, books, and journals. The following tutorials will help you get started with searching some of the most frequently used content. If you would like additional information about any resource, please contact me.
