BUAD 176: Professional Selling

A guide to Library research resources and strategies.

Welcome!

This guide will help you get started on BUAD 176 -specific research. Navigate through the tabs above to find and explore library resources and other information.

The intent of this guide is not to show you all the resources that may be used. Rather, this guide will help you identify some quality resources and provide some direction for your library research. Refer to your assignment outline for specfic details and requirements.

This guide can be used in conjunction with other BUAD course and subject guides.

Plan and follow a research strategy - it will save you time and frustration!

Step 1: Define your assignment/project

What do you need to do? What are the most important concepts in your assignment/project?

Step 2: Focus your research

What questions do you want your research to answer? What information do you need to support and develop your ideas?

Step 3: Develop your keywords

What words and phrases describe the areas and concepts you are researching? You will use these words and phrases to search for resources.

Step 4: Identify your resources

Who would collect the information you want and where would that information be published/available?

Start identifying your resources by using OC Library subject and course guides. If you have any questions, just ask!

Good research requires time, planning, patience, and flexibility. 

Research strategy adapted from University of B.C.’s David Lam Management Research Library’s Jump-Starting My Research (Undergraduate) guide.
