Q. I would love access to this tool: http://www.socialexplorer.com/ https://global.oup.com/academic/library-recommend/?cc=us〈=en&

Seems that the pro edition is free if a library provides access to this tool.

Answer

Hello 
Thanks for recommending, I've used the free version myself.  I've asked for a free trial from the company. We will see how it goes and whether it fits into our needs and budget.
If you are looking for demographic information and marketing information, we have some database resources that you may be aware of.  You can find most of these on the business guide 

DemographicsNow: Business and People provides market and demographic research from many sources including household data, Mosaic market segmentation, census, American Community Survey, Simmons Consumer Info,  You will need your library card to access this. {Likewise, if we subscribed to Social explorer Pro, it would be restricted to library patrons).

A company expert will be here at the Main library on Thursday April 14th  12-3 to demo and answer questions on DemoNow if you care to visit that day.  You can also book a librarian for one-to-one help with the DemographicsNow database.

Thanks again for the recommendation, we appreciate it. 

Kind regards,
Gina
