我在密歇根州一个中型公共图书馆的工作，我们的业务参考集合已被命名的批复“商务资源中心”，由Michigan Small Business Development Center。我们提供业务资料以多种格式，方便商务人士和企业家才能成功。
我们的商务资源中心包括最核心的业务参考标题，如商业计划手册，沃德的商业指南，and品牌和他们的公司。该se print titles are great when you really don’t know what you are looking for, or are just interested in one quick answer. However – full disclosure – I rarely use those reference books. Instead, I use the金宝搏彩票大风目录库。
For another thing, there are more titles in the金宝搏彩票大风目录库比我们实际做有印刷。我们的商务资源中心是了不起的，但它确实专注于业务资料。我们搁置在不同的位置参考书像协会的百科全书和出版物的大风目录和广播媒体。金宝搏彩票他们非常好可能是商务人士非常有用，但企业参考货架只有这么大，所以选择必须对包括的内容有订做！
Third, how often do business reference questions in a public library boil down to “one quick answer?” Almost never. Patrons who come to the library to do business research have Googled their “quick answers.” They come to us for the harder stuff.
所有这三个原因让我去金宝搏彩票大风目录库database. Let’s look at an example. I mentioned recently that my husband is opening a brewery. Good news! They are making real progress and expect to open in the next few months! He and his partners have done a lot of research. They’ve learned a lot about the industry that they didn’t know before they were the industry. Did you know there is an American Society of Brewing Chemists? I didn’t either, but if you do a basic search for “brewing” in the金宝搏彩票大风目录库，an entry from the Encyclopedia of Associations shows it to be true. Did you also know that J. Leinenkugel Brewing Company is part of the Miller Brewing Company? To be honest, that’s less relevant to our small-town brewery, but it is interesting. The金宝搏彩票大风目录库also includes Brands and Their Companies, and an entry on Leinenkugel lists not only the parent company but the SIC code as well.
Enough trivia! Let’s get down to business. I click on the advanced search option at the top of the金宝搏彩票大风目录库。我选择了专门的“企业年度排行榜”发布和搜索关键字“啤酒厂”。该results included the “Top Beer Companies by Volume, 2010” (From the 2013 edition of that publication. It’s Anheuser-Busch InBev, if you’re curious) and “World’s Largest Consumer Beverages Companies, 2010” (Again, 2013 edition. PepsiCo is the largest.)
Another advanced search limited to the publication “Gale Directory of Publications and Broadcast Media” with the keyword “beer” tells us that “Ale Street News,” “Beverage Dynamics,” and “Drinks International” are all publications in the beer industry. Within each of these entries, there are hotlinks to the publication websites and linked email addresses of key personnel in those organizations.
Some key features of the金宝搏彩票大风目录库include the ability to make a marked list. You can add any search result to a list by simply checking the “mark” box at the top of the entry page or to the left of the entry in a search results list. Then, narrow your screen to just your marked list. Now you have a nicely printable (or email-able) list of resources to refer back to later.
该ability to “Infomark” an article or a list of articles is nice too. This creates a single URL that you can share, making your research effort nicely accessible to others with one click. This is a great way to refer back to your research later.
