Coronavirus/COVID-19 Impact on Business & the Economy: Getting Started

Providing resources on the pandemic's effects on business and the economy.

This guide is intended for use by our students and faculty as a resource for classes and research on the business and economic impacts of the pandemic. Traditional scholarly literature processes are deliberative, while the impacts are happening in real time; the intention here is to provide current information as best we can, from a mix of open web and library subscription resources.

If there is a resource you'd like to suggest, or have questions about how to use these and other tools to research something specific, please contact us. We are working from home.
