How to be a millionaire

Posted on: July 5, 2013

Book shelves and journalsOver the next two weeks we have students in for our Start Your Own Enterprise course. As part of the induction the LRC team gave a session on using the new Dawsonera ebook platform. We demonstrated how you can download a PDF of an ebook then use Read Write Gold to have the text of the ebook read back to you. Great for dyslexics and  for reinforcing what you’ve learnt as well as bed time reading. Our students and staff can access our ebooks through OpenAthens. Here’s a selection of the business ebooks we have.

On Thursday we did a session on business websites. We’ve put  these so students can get to them easily on the Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC). The list includes gateway sites for setting up a business from scratch, sites to help with funding your business, online business magazines and libraries like the City Business Library and British Library Intellectual Property (IP) Centre which provide free seminars and access to market research and databases. Today we’ve added a number of women’s business networks to the list too.
