Time is money. Can you afford to lose any?

Someone to organize, evaluate, and catalog your collection of books, music, DVDs or videos?

No question is too big or too small for BFIS.

Amy Ranger, the proprietor of
BiblioFairy Information Services, is an independent information professional.

Information professionals gather, organize and coordinate access to the best available information sources for an organization, and understand the need to turn that information into usable knowledge. Clients pay for the expertise that Amy Ranger brings to the research process, and to any related information services.

Contrary to the conventional wisdom, most information is not available free on the web. In fact, much of the authoritative, reliable data necessary for strategic business planning is found only in proprietary databases that are not listed in well-known search engines. Some information can only be found in books — yes, even today — which you may not have the time or inclination to track down. I can do that for you. Other types of data must be retrieved through courthouse visits or government documents, telephone interviews with experts, or by reading published articles, corporate white papers, or association reports which may be buried deep within organizational websites.

Finding reliable, relevant information in “the information age” is not as easy as it seems. Call a professional for your information needs. Call
BiblioFairy Information Services at 269-352-6452.

Your business success very likely depends on critical information about your industry or field, customers, and competition. Let 
BiblioFairy Information Services help you keep up with competitor profiles, industry news and trends, and product innovations.

BiblioFairy Information Services offers customized research, analysis, and/or  the management of information resources for clients. Project pricing is based on hourly fees ($100, rush service available at $125), miscellaneous fees (parking, telephone or fax charges), and database charges.

Because database charges vary, you will  appreciate the skill brought to the search by Amy Ranger in choosing and in using the most cost-effective sources to meet your information needs. With 
BiblioFairy Information Services you have  an experienced librarian for professional, personal research assistance. All inquiries are confidential. Call today for a free consultation, 269-352-6452.
