Entrepreneurship, Marketing, and Business Data Librarian
Jordan Nielsen is the Entrepreneurship, Marketing, and Business Data Librarian, and he uses business data to power research and creativity at SDSU. He works closely with students, faculty, and staff all over campus to help them access and extract different types of data—market data, economic data, and financial data.
Financial Literacy Champion
Financial data is important beyond the research and creative environments—we need it to make everyday decisions. The ability to apply skills and knowledge to make informed financial decisions is known as financial literacy. In order to promote financial literacy at SDSU, Jordan is spearheading the creation of the Financial Literacy Exchange (FLEX) Center. The FLEX Center will be housed in the SDSU Library, and it will give students the opportunity to develop their financial literacy skills.
As the liaison librarian to the College of Business Administration, the Department of Economics and School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, Jordan provides research consultations for business students and faculty, he manages and develops the Library’s business collections, and he teaches library research classes. He is passionate about teaching the skills needed to access and use business data. He is currently working on a grant-funded project to create an online game that will give students the opportunity to acquire these skills outside of the traditional classroom setting.
Jordan holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing, a master’s degree in business administration, and a master’s degree in information sciences, all from the University of Tennessee.
