BRASS Business Guide - BANKING: Reference

Sponsored by the BRASS Education Committee


The U.S. banking industry is comprised primarily of commercial banks, along with savings banks and savings and loan institutions (also known as "thrifts"), credit unions, and Federal Reserve banks. Identifying and assessing financial institutions, both geographically and by type, and researching interest rates probably constitute the most common and predictable banking information needs of the broadest range of library users. International banking is also referenced here, from a "global" perspective.
