Mary Ellen Bates has done the business community a great service by bringing together a handful of some pretty amazing interviews with researchers involved in finding information for business use. Super Searchers Do Business offers readers plenty of useful research tips and ideas gleaned from these researchers already operating in the corporate trenches.
The professional researchers interviewed for this book offer plenty of insightful help. They identify some of the databases they use, the discussion groups and mailing lists they participate in, the journals they read, the electronic newsletters they receive, and some good recommended reading. These resources are listed at the back of the book for convenient reader accessibility. While the use of these resources alone won't guarantee researching success, they do offer a good place to start.
Other helpful insight offered by these researchers includes their advice. Each offer their own angle for success. They point out how they make use of multiple resources for information gathering, how they have learned to move from one resource to another when the task calls for new direction, identifying reliable resources, and how they have learned to rely on their "gut" feelings at times when sorting through information. The professional researcher must learn not only how to gather information but how to package it together to meet their client's needs. This book will show readers how!
One of the recurring themes identified throughout this book is that of combining research skills with a business mindset. The researchers interviewed for the book demonstrate by example how they have interacted with their clients. They cite actual circumstances they have faced on the job and how they responded to client demands. This valuable insight will go a long way to help readers assess their own research and interpersonal relationship skills and help them to learn how to relate better with their own business clients.
This book is ideal for persons desiring to improve their research skills. It's loaded with tips, resources, and many ideas that can make online and off-line researching an easier and more productive task to accomplish. It is must reading for persons desiring to setup their own research services!
