Library Skills and Resources for Business Research.
Lyle, Stanley P.; Ashbaugh, Donald L.
This independent study module is intended to introduce business administration students and managers to business information available in books, periodicals, and other library sources, and to teach library search strategies for the acquisition of needed information with a minimum expenditure of time. The module consists of six parts. The first three begin with specific objectives and end with exercises on locating books on business topics using (1) the card catalog, (2) indexes and abstracts, and (3) general business reference works. Exercises at the end of part three are intended to illustrate the types of questions such sources can answer and affords practice with these sources. Part four introduces specialized sources in the functional areas of business: finance, human resources, production, marketing, accounting, and law. The final instructional unit pulls together material from the previous chapters and demonstrates search strategies with three outlined examples: company information, industry/product/market information, and general business topic. Answers to exercises are provided in part six. A study guide is provided in the introduction. (RAA)
