Business Research & Analysis is a generic Library Guide (LibGuide) assigned to selected Blackboard courses that are served by the WML Business Librarian (Dan Maynard) and the WML Reference & Online Instruction Librarian (Elizabeth Dobbins). As such, these pages are the primary launching space for the ‘remote delivery’ of important commonly known business resources and for assisting students with writing in an APA style that is adapted for the School of Business. This Guide is exploratory in nature, a prototype, an investigation, a probe - I look forward to your participation in its development (DM).
Use of this Guide
The resources listed in this Guide are foundational and can be useful in a variety of classes covering all Business degree programs and all Business majors at the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business and Online and Adult Education (ACCT, BADM, ECON, FIN, HCM, MRKT, MGNT, PGM, TRST). Applications of these key materials have been latticed into presentations ranging from 100 level First Year Experience (FYE) classes to 790 level capstone MBA courses.
The Investigate ... pages are designed to function across disciplines by organizing the material conceptually as either:
The Report your findings ... page provides the LFSB Writing Rubric, links to APA formats, a generic APA Template of a research paper that students can download to begin their paper, and a sample paper taken from an actual assignment. This presentation and arrangement of library materials is derived from the Library's Information Literacy Plan - Framework 1. Scholarship as conversation.
