While every product or service is part of a larger industry, finding relevant reports, market size, and competition can be challenging. The Library of Congress has many resources that can help you find the numbers you need for your business plan or to help you run your business better.
Business Reference and Research Specialists will highlight free sources as well as those resources available at the Library of Congress, and share their research strategies and tips for finding current industry information.
