Beginner’s Guide to Business Research

Beginner’s Guide to Business Research. Kognito Solutions LLC has released this new information literacy tutorial which focuses on business. This site uses flash and has sound. Do not try to load this unless you are at the library or have broadband at home. Overall, I think this is a good product.

From the site:

Welcome to "Beginner’s Guide to Business Research", an information literacy tutorial developed in conjunction with Baruch College of the City University of New York.

This interactive tutorial provides students with hands-on, self-paced instruction on where and how to find the best, most accurate information via the Web when conducting business research.
The tutorial includes interactive activities, library database simulations, and an interactive quiz with customized feedback.

Please contact us if you are interested in discussing customization of this tutorial for your institution or development of similar cutting-edge resources.

Thank you for drawing attention to our "Beginner's Guide to Business Research". Please note that, as the title page states, the tutorial was developed by the William and Anita Newman Library (Baruch College). The content contributor and reviewer was Louise Klusek, our Head of Reference. Kognito Solutions was responsible for providing project management, instructional design, and the course engine.
