I-CORE Research Guide

How to use this guide

The I-CORE Research Guide is designed to help you progress through the research needed to complete your I-CORE project. Each page has suggested resources, tips, tutorials, and strategies that can help you as you work on each deliverable.

If you have questions please contact the business librarian as she can clarify. She is available by phone and e-mail. You can also book a research consultation by clicking the "Book Now" button under her picture. If you schedule a research consultation please review the materials available through the guide prior to the meeting so that time can be optimized.

The librarian is a great resource if you get stuck while working on this project. How to get help:
