This research guide is intended for students who are preparing a business plan for the Report Writing course (or any Business course). You will learn about the library tools that are available to you for your research. Please use the tabs to explore different library resources. Tabs tagged with a professor's name include information specific to their class or an assignment.
The tab entitled Researching Parts of the Business Plan, provides resources for specific items that you may need to address in a business report, including statistics and demographic information, real estate properties, business licenses & forms, competition, local business information, consumer information, and advertising.
