If you’re curious about business information, but don’t have a business background, this session is for you. We will go through the basics of what business information is, where you can find it, and how you might use it to bring additional insights to your research project.  Sample topics include:

--Company information: individual company profiles; lists of companies based on common characteristics such as location and industry --Market information: demographics, lifestyles and purchasing habits of people around the world --Economic information: individual access to resources, personal expenditures, business environment characteristics by country

Developing better research skills is just a tweet away. Learn to find sources, manage information, and share your research with the world: https://twitter.com/IllinoisLibrary
