This new edition of Strauss's classic handbook will retain its place as an essential text for library students; an indispensable guide for practitioners in public, academic, and special libraries who deal with business inquiries; and a resource for entrepreneurs and business professionals.
Today's information professionals must be prepared to assist many different types of patrons: inexperienced users who don't know where to look for the information they seek; seasoned researchers who need help with complex queries; and general clientele, such as budding entrepreneurs seeking information to develop or expand a business.
While widespread use of the Internet has made a vast amount of information within reach of the masses, specific knowledge is still required in order to find what is being sought on the web. Accordingly, public and academic librarians are finding themselves working closely with users at both ends of the information seeker spectrum more than ever before.
This third edition of Strauss's Handbook of Business Information provides an up-to-date reference guide to business resources, both in print and online. Organized into two parts, the first six chapters address general areas of business while chapters 7 through 16 cover more specific topics, such as marketing, investment, and real estate. This book is invaluable to librarians in academic, public, and special libraries as well as business and library students studying business information or business research.
