The movement to publish, aggregate, and deploy open access books, journals and other scholarly resources continues to grow at a rapid pace. However, open access in the academic context almost always implies peer-reviewed or other scholarly resources. But there is a wealth of credible, substantive non-scholarly business-focused research sites, sources, and databases on the open Web, freely accessible via a simple Google search. 

These sources are not always easy to identify and how do you know for sure if the ones you find are truly credible? This presentation will provide practical tips and strategies for locating the most valuable, credible free business information sources out on the open Web. 

Robert Berkman is a first term MLIS student and is the Business Librarian at the University of Rochester, New York.
