Business Reference – online course registration closes August 11


Just a quick reminder that registration for the next offering of Business Reference 101 closes next Wednesday, August 11!

The course, which will be held August 16-September 17, has consistently sold out, so if you want to take advantage of this amazing learning opportunity, DON’T WAIT!

This online course is tailored for public, special and academic librarians and other researchers and library staff who may feel somewhat intimidated when faced with business reference questions. It is primarily geared towards beginners, but seasoned business researchers could take the course as a skills refresher. Access to proprietary databases, increased competence in business reference and confidence in responding to patrons’ business reference questions are just a few things you’ll get from this online course.
