This library session is about getting you prepared for college-level research. We'll do that by focusing on researching information you'll need to start your own business, and briefly covering tools, resources and skills that will help you with every research project at UT.
Specifically, you will learn:
1. how to research companies and industries, and how to find market data and demographics to help you as you plan your own business.
2. what tools are available for organizing and citing sources
3. how to get research, writing and public speaking help.
4. how to find guides that will help you locate and evaluate sources
