Baseema first dispels the myth that using library has to be a physical activity, but the library actually opens up a world of electronic resources. In this tough economy, students have to look beyond Google. Students should contact a librarian to use Career Search, a website that can generate a list of contact names and number in a certain business for a specific geographic region in under 5 minutes. Also, the Vault Career Guide, a subscription resource offered by career offices, is available through the Cornell Library. The two resources offer unbiased resources in a fraction of the time one might spend searching Google. Finally, Baseema informs us that the librarians can also help students develop the skills that are needed in business, such as creating a business plan. Students can even get this help directly through the Cornell website by clicking on the “Ask a Librarian” link. In general, the Cornell Libraries can help career search and help develop skills that students need when they start working. Baseema encourages all students to get online and Google their school library for help.
