BUSINESS TRACK: Need to do market research? Book a Librarian in Mission

Mission Library has a new feature that can help those searching for information

Whatever your question, you can now get customized research help in a one-on-one session with Mission Library information experts.

“People have big questions, and little time for quality research,” says Diana Marshall, Mission librarian. “We want to save you time. That’s why we’re so pleased to be launching this service.”

Of a recent appointment with a local business person, Diana says, “She came to the library quite overwhelmed — there’s so much market information, she just didn’t know where to start. My colleagues and I set her up with a nice stack of materials, personalized to her needs, and a list of resources to go to next. She was so relieved.”

The service is new to the library, launched this September as a way for the library to address the community’s evolving computer and technology needs. It has since expanded from computer help to downloading eBooks, job hunting, market research and more. While each customer is different, the format works well for business and homework questions alike.

Thirty-minute one-on-one sessions are available by appointment to get you started, whatever the question. Library staff are trained and experienced at finding quality information. Simply contact the library and ask your question.

Many questions can be answered on the spot. For questions requiring more time, library staff will be happy to book an appointment.

Book a Librarian appointment times are available throughout the week.

For more information, call 604-826-6610 or visit them in person at 33247 Second Ave.

Mission Community Library is a founding member of the Fraser Valley Regional Libraries.
