Getting Started - Information

If you live near the capital of the financial services industry, your best bet is to take a train into Penn Station and get acquainted with the New York Public Library's Science, Industry and Business Library (SIBL). It is on Madison Avenue at 34th Street, a block east of the Empire State Building. Columbia University also has an excellent resource, the Watson Library.

In Washington, D.C., you can take advantage of the Business Reference Services center at the Library of Congress, 101 Independence Avenue S.E.
