Demystifying Business Information

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are many reasons that students from all majors, and patrons from all backgrounds, seek out business information. Yet, for many people, business information seems like a specialized genre that’s confusing or even intimidating. Librarians, too, might doubt their ability to successfully help patrons find and use business information. Our panel will share lessons learned about the unique opportunities and challenges involved in bringing business information to new audiences beyond the business school. The business liaisons at the University of Minnesota will discuss their experiences supporting entrepreneurship research and classes, and how they learned ways to translate business information to users who are rooted outside the business school. Our third panelist has experience in both business and traditional liberal arts settings, and will speak to her experiences introducing liberal arts students to business information.
