For those of you who are embarking on your International Business Plan Project this summer, here are some ways that the library can help.
The library subscribes to several great business databases that will help you with your research:
For country economic and political risk profiles and international industry analysis, look at Business Monitor Online. EIU Country Reports & Profiles is also a good database for current country economic and political profiles. LexisNexis, Proquest, and Business Source Elite will help you with your competitor analysis and market research. You’ll find market research reports and country marketing guides using STAT-USA.
All of these databases are linked to our Research Databases page. If you are off-campus, you’ll need to log onto your network account to access these and other subscription databases. Any questions about how to use these online resources, just ask!
If you’d like to refer to business plans from past years, you’ll find them in our Thesis Collection. Right next to the theses in the Fletcher Jones reading area, is our fabulous Business Reference Collection. This collection of international statistical yearbooks, country marketing guides, and company directories compliments our online research tools.
Stop by the display case in the front lobby to see some of the books we have on how to write a business plan. All of these books are available for checkout, so if you see something you’d like to use, just let us know.
