How to Use this Site: The Business Research Launch Pad

Rocket LaunchingGreetings!

Welcome to Jim Vileta's Business Research Launch Pad!

The purpose of the "Launch Pad" is to bring together the major resources we have for business research in one place, and to organize them for ease of access.

We have organized our resources in a number of ways.

First, notice our Left Navigation column. Below we describe each section of this Left Column:

Now, moving from the Left Column to contents of the "Launch Pad's" home page, below the link to this page, we have the following links:

Starting Points: "Which Sources should I Use?" (this page provides a narrative outlining the types of information resources found in business research, and linking those to the databases that provide that information.)

Below "Starting Points," you will find a button link to our "FAQs for Business Research"and below that, a button link to our "Research Guides for LSBE Assignments."These are the same links as on the Left Column, and they are listed twice because of their importance.  Next is listed “Your Library at a Glance,” showing links to Kathryn A. Martin Library collections, services and locations. Next are links to “You Want to Find Books?”, and then, “You Want to Find Articles?” and then “How to Find the Business Databases?

Also included on this page are links to:

If you could use additional help navigating my Business Research Launch Pad, make an appointment to come see me in my office. I am happy to answer your questions.
