This guide was created for students in the Business English and Skills Transition Program (BEST) to help you develop your library research skills so that you will be successful during your studies here at Brock University.
If you do not have much experience conducting library research, then I highly recommend that you start by reviewing our Research Foundations Tutorial, which is a self-paced, open course consisting of five lessons:
Begin Your Research
Find Books & Media
Cite Your Sources
Are You New to Brock?
If you are new to Brock University, and you have not yet used our Library, you will need to learn to navigate our Library by taking a Virtual Library Tour so you know the 5Ws (Who, What, Where When, & Why).
Are You New to Business Research?
There are also Literature Review Research Tips related to finding information for your Corporate Social Responsibility Assignment, writing literature reviews and reports, using APA Style, and pitching your ideas.
Finally, you will find sources to help you build your vocabulary of Business English terms and increase your understanding of Business-related topics.
