Types of Questions You Can Ask

Basically, you can ask me any type of question that pertains to the subject areas that I cover, and anything pertaining to business in general.  And you can be very specific--the more specific the better.  However, I can handle general questions as well. 

To give you an idea of what I mean, here is a (very short!) list of types of questions that I have handled in the past:

  • Which is the best database to use for gaining access to trade and industry periodicals?
  • Does Milner Library subscribe to the Harvard Business Review?  How about Harvard Business School Cases?
  • Who are the top 5 competitors of Apple? 
  • How much did Apple spend on research and development for the years leading up to the release of the iPod?
  • Where can I find historical stock prices for a company that no longer exists today?
  • Does Milner subscribe to the top-ranked journals in the field of Accounting?
  • Who is on the Board of Directors of Google and what is their compensation?
  • What is the market size of the U.S. retail industry?
  • How can I find consumer spending patterns for the St. Louis region during the 1960s?
  • Is there a way for me to track the annual revenue of a company that started 100 years ago? 
  • Does Milner have any recent materials on the topic of the global financial crisis that started in 2007?
  • Can Milner help me keep track of federal tax legislation?
  • Do you have any books or journal articles on the topic of econophysics?
  • Can you help me understand the global trend to eradicate poverty known as "microfinance?"
  • What was the GDP of the top ten countries over the past 10 years?
  • Do you have any data that will help me determine balance of payments trends for 25 non-U.S. countries?
  • How is the Insurance industry using social networks, if at all?
  • And many more . . .
