Working with actual clients,  the New Venture Business Consulting class requires  teams of students  to analyze and deliver specific recommendations for unique projects from local  companies 

One activity common to all projects is to gather any relevant information for this task and the resources in this guide attempt to provide a starting point for this endeavor. Because each project is unique and evolves as communication between the client and the team develop during the project's duration, the resources in  this guide are general in scope. Many projects will use information from the library's databases or creditable websites as a small portion of their deliverables.  Hint: Think about what your idea will accomplish: is it unique, does it fill a need, solve a problem, improve a service, is it a new application or approach, etc...

As you work with your client, your information needs may change. Be ready to search sources multiple times with new search terms and parameters. 

  • Before you start, think about what  you already know about the topic?

  • What information can your client share with you about the project?

  • Do you need to find general background information to give you some context about the project?

As your liaison, please do hesitate to contact me with questions about possible information sources.
