Simmons course: Basic business research skills

If you or someone you know is interested in learning basic business research skills in the area of investment research, please consider the following online course at Simmons Graduate School of Library and Information Science:

See link:

http://alanis.simmons.edu/ceweb/workshop.php?id=139

This online course is four weeks long, begins November 1st-30th, with about 3-4 hours of work per week.

We will cover personal finance, investments, banking products, stocks, bonds, company and industry research, mutual funds, retirement accounts, real estate, taxation and more… The focus is on both understanding financial concepts and building research skills. Weekly activities include lectures with links to mainly free business resources and selected databases, case studies to respond to and discuss, short exercise sets and a work related project of each student’s choice.

It’s a great way to delve into business research! No experience necessary, but appropriate for both novice and intermediate searchers.

Examples are relevant to both public and academic libraries.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Register Now for “Digital Copyright” with Mary Minow

*Simmons Graduate School of Library and Information Science Continuing Education*

* Digital Copyright*

Online (asynchronous)

$250 (Simmons GSLIS Alumni Price $200)
April 1 – April 30, 2011
PDPs: 15

This four-week workshop gives students a hands-on, nonacademic view of copyright. Bring your own real-life scenarios for class discussion. Who owns the works I create? When can I use text, images and music created by others? Learn how to determine if an item is in the public domain. If it is not, learn how to determine if the library/archive or another user exception in copyright law allows your use. If the user exceptions don’t fit your need, learn how to make a good faith Fair Use evaluation. Finally, learn some tips about getting permission to use others’ works.

Assignments include: registering for a copyright, creating a creative commons license for a work you’ve created, searching the Copyright Clearance Center (copyright.com) for permissions and designating a copyright agent with the Copyright Office (optional).

Threaded discussions with classmates and the instructor will be the primary means of teaching.

Instructor: Mary Minow, J.D., A.M.L.S. is a Library Law consultant at librarylaw.com.
