Join Us for a Virtual Business Research Orientation on March 10

Interested in how to do Business Research at the Library of Congress? Come to our Virtual Business Research Orientation on March 10, from 1-2 pm!

The virtual Business Research Orientation provides an overview of resources and services for business research, with an emphasis on Library of Congress tools and search strategies that can be used from home. This class is designed to introduce students, librarians, researchers, and entrepreneurs to research at the Library, navigating the online catalog, and highlighting resources specific to business research. Afterwards, try out your skills with a Business Research Scavenger Hunt using Library of Congress resources. You’ll be able to send chats throughout the presentation; we love it when you bring your questions with you!

Library of Congress Business Research and Reference Specialists will also be highlighting freely available online business resources accessible anywhere with an internet connection as well as resources available via a subscription or library license- either onsite at the Library of Congress or at other libraries.

If you cannot attend the class, check out some helpful videos on Using the Science and Business Reading Room and the Library of Congress. We hope you will be able to join us by registering for one of our upcoming sessions.

Register for this March session, and you’ll receive the link to join the webinar. Individuals requiring accommodations for any of these events are requested to submit a request at least five business days in advance by contacting (202) 707-6362 or [email protected].

*YOU WILL RECEIVE A WEBEX LINK PRIOR TO THE WEBINAR*
