Web-based information resources

This is the home page for BIT330, “Web-based information resources”, taught by Scott Moore at the Ross School of Business in Fall (September—December) 2009. This site has all the information you will need for this class, including assignments and the schedule. I'm not using a forum this year for posting questions — I encourage you to use twitter or email to contact me or (heaven forbid!) talk with me during office hours.

If you're wondering why you might want to take this class, then you should watch this video.

Here is a page that lists the best search tools for business students that we discussed and explored in Fall 2008.
