Library Hours

Research Consultations

Professional reference service is available via phone, e-mail, and in-person at both the St. Paul and Keffer libraries. While walk-in service is often available, we recommend that you make an appointment for lengthy consultations or tutorials. Contact any business librarian for an appointment.

Off-Campus Access

With very few exceptions, UST Libraries resources are available from off-campus.  You will be asked to enter your UST username/password.  This is the username you use for your UST email, not your Banner ID. 

Reference Materials

Not sure where to start? These reference materials provide a good basis for the start of any research project. Get general background information about theories and approaches here, then move towards the databases for detailed information and data.

eStatement Studies

In eStatement Studies you'll find Financial Ratio Benchmark (FRB) figures, broken down by US Region and revenue quartile, for a very large number of industries. 

Look here for smaller and specialized industries, like Adhesive Manufacturing or Automobile Driving Schools.
