Course Description

The purpose of this course is to familiarize academic librarians who work with both Business faculty and students – including, but not limited to, Accounting, Administration/Management, Economics, Finance, Marketing, & Sports Management – with best practices for the process of finding, retrieving, organizing, evaluating, using, and distributing information both in print and electronic formats. They will learn to identify and locate major and trusted sources for business reference and information. Course participants will also learn how to assist users in conducting business research effectively using a variety of resources, depending on their institutional access, from open access and public web sources to highly specialized databases.

This course will span four weeks, organized by module, and cover the evolving role of business reference, examine monographs, content aggregators, databases, and periodicals in business fields, evaluate specialized databases that can be useful for business research, and introduce participants to intellectual property and competitive intelligence topics.
