WPC 101: Student Success in Business

ASU 101 for the WP Carey School of Business

Why Information is Important to Business Professionals

Why would an entrepreneur or business professional need to find information?  

  • Write a report or paper
  • Learn how a process works
  • Research a company or industry
  • Conduct a business start-up exercise
  • Find products or components
  • Your instructor will provide additional examples of how information is used in your field

Why use the library when I can use Google?

  • The library has the authoritative sources you’ll be using as a business professional.
  • Most authoritative sources are not freely available on the Internet.
  • And most importantly, using authoritative resources will help you with your class assignments and projects.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
