We’re the Data ‘Gold Mine’ for Business Owners
Library advocates in Union County, New Jersey, say ReferenceUSA continues to be a valuable resource to small business owners who need to stay ahead of the competition.
Last year, the Libraries of Union County Consortium (LUCC), a group of independent public libraries in Union County, prioritized public education of resources at New Jersey’s libraries.
Lynn Favreau, a former LUCC vice president, told ReferenceUSA that the gathering offered “county-wide training and networking for small business owners at one central location.”
She said the training session was clear and simple, which allowed the audience to easily understand everything ReferenceUSA has to offer. Training is available online to anyone who missed the workshop.
Favreau said ReferenceUSA is a “gold mine for small business owners, local chambers of commerce, and countless other users,” and “no other single resource does as much.”
She added business owners were “amazed” they could narrow their searches by geographic radius and could quickly locate accurate general information.
About the LUCC: The group was founded in 1985 and is comprised of 20 public libraries and Union County Community College. The LUCC promotes cooperative library activities in an effort to provide patrons with high-quality library services. Union County has an estimated population of about 560,000.
