Best of the Best Business Websites (Free Resources)

Sponsored by the BRASS Education Committee

The Education Committee of the Business Reference and Services Section (BRASS) of the Reference and User Services Association (RUSA) of the American Library Association (ALA) began in 1998 to identify several long-term educational projects that would be developed to fulfill the committee's role of providing educational and developmental opportunities for librarians involved in providing business reference services. The 'Best of the Best' Business Web Sites (Free Resources)' project was the first of the projects completed in 2000. The Committee subsequently has published the Selected Core Resources pages on the BRASS website.
