Company & Industry Research for Engineers & Scientists


This session will introduce you to library-supported databases that cover company and industry information. We will use hands-on exercises to demonstrate strategies for researching two key components of a business plan: competitors and industry trends.

Presented by MIT Librarians Stephanie Hartman (Barker Engineering Library) and Alex Caracuzzo (Dewey Library for Management and Social Sciences).


Video (47:35) and Handout (pdf) from the January 2009 IAP session.
