COVID-19 & Business Research for British Columbia's Small Businesses

Last Updated: May 29, 2020

With the help of local BC business librarians, we have created a new page in our Business Basics section titled COVID-19 & Business Research to help you find credible business information during these uncertain and rapidly changing times. We have listed freely available public resources, as well as databases that may be licensed through local libraries, including here at UBC Library. You will find curated content on the following categories:

  • Key Business Research Starting Places

    Features go-to resources and services that aggregate information about COVID-19 and business.

  • Funding Resources

    An accessible list of various financial resources that have been made available for business during this crisis.

  • Industry Databases with Licensed & Freely Available Content

    A list of databases and tools that are available to the public, as well as through licensed subscriptions. These resources can help you research impacts of the pandemic on industries, consumers and the Canadian economy.

  • Legal Resources

    A variety of legal resources including news, legal updates and Q&As related to COVID-19.

  • Free Educational Opportunities & Professional Development Opportunities

    Free webinars and online courses that business schools have made available in response to the pandemic.

We hope this resource guide is useful to the BC small business community. We invite your comments below to share any questions, feedback or resources with us.
