FREE Business and research clinic Karori Library 5th September 2019

I will be at Karori Library on 5th September 2019 between 5.30 and 7.30 providing individual business and research advice. I will be demonstrating the Library’s business resources, and general searching techniques. Anyone is free to attend. If you would like more information and/or to make an appointment, please contact me on 021596274 or email me at marilyn.domney@wcc.govt.nz. I was intending to make the appointments 30 mins, but this is dependent on the number of people booking, and appointments could run longer if time is available. Although I am a “business specialist” I am a long-time researcher across all sectors.

Wellington City Libraries has an amazing collection of e-resources through our Mygateway.

I thought it was time for an update to reassure business patrons that although our Central Library is closed, you still have access to an online collection of business e-books, and e-journals via our RB Digital link on our website (NZ Business & Management, the Economist, Fast Company, Idealog to name just a few. If you need access to training resources in lead generation, social media marketing, branding etc we subscribe to Lynda.com which has a wonderful collection of online e-training courses at which ever level you are at, absolutely free with your library card.

Read the Harvard Business Review fulltext online or research the latest thinking on business or artificial intelligence via our Business Source Complete on our Mygateway Business resources.

I will be doing a separate post on our two new business resources. So keep an eye out.
