Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

23 Scopus citations


In an effort to know how much research and library use was expected of students by business faculty, the author undertook a syllabus study of courses in the business curriculum. Business syllabi were found to include a higher level of research than was expected and an analysis of courses aided in development of strategies for opening discussions with faculty and for assisting students. This method is recommended for librarians seeking familiarity with curricula.
