In the past few years there has been a marked increase in the number of business and financial sites on the Internet. As a result, librarians need to have a solid grasp of financial terminology, understand concepts to be able to answer financial questions, and continue to stay current with business and financial developments. Often, the websites that can help you answer business and finance questions can also teach you about the subject. Reference tools such as glossaries, FAQs, and tutorials, can be of tremendous help in answering business‐related questions – provided you know where to locate them. This article will discuss some common financial questions and suggest websites as good reference tools to help you learn about business and finance.
