Let's learn how to use the Library Online resources to research your competition, build vendor databases and specific business - to- customer databases. You will be given live demos of building databases that you can use as call lists, mailing lists or understanding a demographic. Linda will also take time to help you understand how this data comes about. Handouts will be available.
