Information professionals newly working with business information - whether in a public reference library, academic library, government library, national library, industrial/commercial library or corporate information centre - will often have little or no experience of business research, and it can be difficult to know where to start. This book is a practical introduction to business information sources in the UK, with the emphasis firmly on highlighting effective research approaches and useful resources in all formats, whether free, fee-based, print or online. Its aim is to fully equip you with tools to identify appropriate business information for your individual needs. Packed with useful tips throughout, the book is organized so that it can be dipped into quickly to find resources to answer specific questions, or browsed to get an overview of resources on companies, markets, statistics or international trade. The author has obtained feedback from business information professionals across the sectors to ensure coverage from a full range of perspectives.

Key topics covered include: defining business information; business structures in the UK; company information sources; statistics for business; researching markets; biographical information; international trade sources; and keeping up to date. This book is essential for business information professionals, market researchers and staff in business support agencies who are just starting out, or for those needing to update their knowledge and skills. It is also ideal for LIS, market research and business students, and will be a key text for core modules such as research skills courses.
