Orientation Re-cap

Business Communications II orientations took place two weeks ago.  B-Comm II orientation is mostly about the different database offerings at King’s College.  If you need a re-cap, or if it has been awhile since you took B-Comm II, here is a synopsis of what was covered.


All of the following can be found at www.kingslibrary.org behind the “search databases” login.

Britannica Online – An online encyclopedia useful for general information about a topic.

Britannica Image – Images that can be used in student projects/assignments.

Hoovers – Relevant business information about people, companies, and/or industries.

First Research – Industry information needed to successfully navigate the job search and interview process.

travel42 – Travel information including lengthy destination reports of cities, states, and countries.

LIRN (Library & Resources Information Network) – Numerous databases of articles from scholarly journals, magazines, newspapers, etc.  Features database offerings from InfoTrac (Gale) and ProQuest, among others.
