Getting started: Top 5 tips

Tip #1: Bookmark It!

The Entrepreneurship Research Guide is your one-stop-shop for resources and research tips, so bookmark this page so you can return to it easily throughout your time at UCI, and beyond!

Tip #2: Navigation

Use the navigation menu to help you find the resource, or type of information, you're looking for. Some pages, such as Industry & Market Research, have drop-down menus with additional pages featuring resources related to specific topics, such as Consumers.

Tip #3: Access key

Each resource on this guide has an access icon letting you know who can access the resource, and where. Most of the UCI Libraries' electronic resources are available to anyone using a computer on the UCI campus, but there are a few that are restricted to current UCI students, faculty, and staff (those with an active UCInetID and password).

Use the Access key box (located below the navigation menu on the left side of each page) to help you determine which resources you can access. You can also hover/mouseover an icon for an explanation.

Tip #4: Remote / off-campus access

Remote access to electronic library resources is only available to current UCI students, faculty, and staff with an active UCInetID and password, using the Virtual Private Network (VPN).

Visit the links in the Connect box (located on each page of the guide) to learn more about the VPN.

Tip #5: Help

As the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Librarian, I'm here to help you learn how to navigate the UCI Libraries' resources, how to conduct efficient and effective research, and can help you develop research strategies that are specific to your topic or venture.

Below the navigation menu, you'll find my contact information, as well as a Schedule Appointment button to easily schedule a research consultation with me. Don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you may have!
