We're working towards restoring the business computers but in the meantime we are delighted to be able offer Dublin City library card holders remote access to one of our most useful business databases: Vison-Net.
In the last 18 months, many of us have had to adapt our way of working. Remote working is now commonplace for many employers and employees and in many cases, it has produced effective and positive results. However, with this new way of working comes many new challenges. At Work Matters at the Library, we have compiled a number of websites and web resources that give handy tips and advice to those who are getting used to the remote workspace.
Work Matters at the Library is a national Libraries programme that is designed to help those looking for a job or a career change or starting their own business. The first area we are going to look at is supporting those who are looking for jobs or changing career, starting with a look at CV’s and cover letters.
Throughout the Covid 19 situation, the Business Information Service, provided by the Central Library, has carried on. Like the businesses and educational institutions that we support, we have had to adapt our service.
The Business Information Service, based in the Central Library, has continued to support business and education throughout the pandemic. While we can’t be there in person to help with research we can help remotely.
Euromonitor International is the publisher of the Passport database - a powerful resource for international market, consumer and economic research. During COVID 19 restrictions staff at the Business Information Centre use this resource to answer patron enquires as diverse as the coffee market in Ireland to the market for gum in Morocco.
