Welcome!

Dear Rutgers Business Student:

 

Welcome to the Dana Library and to our business resources.  You will be using these resources in your classes in entrepreneurship, business plans, marketing, finance, international business, organization management, and anywhere research on companies, industries, or business topics is required (like your search for jobs and internships).

 

In this session we will look at Business Source Premier, a treasure trove of business articles and reports on many subjects.  We will also be exploring our business databases and business guides, which are acquired or created for your needs as a business student.  In addition, we have three business librarians on this campus to answer your questions and help you succeed.

 

Best regards,

 

The Dana Business Librarians
