Free Resources for Small Businesses and Entrepreneurs

About This Guide

Many of the COVID-19 resources originate from a large Google Doc entitled "COVID-19 and Business Research." Alice Kalinowski at Stanford University created the document, and many other business librarians contributed.


During normal times, Olin Library is open to alumni and members of the community. Unfortunately, during the COVID-19 pandemic, many of Olin's specialized resources are only available off-campus to Rollins students, faculty, and staff. That said, there are quite a few resources that are freely available to Rollins alumni, small business owners, and entrepreneurs, including some resources on the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on business and the economy.

In addition, sometimes you will come across reports behind a paywall on the open Web. Examples of these reports are industry reports by IBISWorld or statistical reports by Statista. If that happens, please contact Blake. He may be able to get them for you for free.
