This is a case study of the Hummer. It was designed to help students develop effective strategies for finding information on the internet. Questions for analysis are provided as well as links to articles about the vehicle.
As a professional librarian I am concerned about this module. It promotes itself as a way to help students to effectively perform business research on the Internet. I find it completely lacking in that respect,in that it only provides a few recommended sites with no guidance or evaluation. As someone pointed out, the American Demographics site is going to be of little use without a membership. Yet a valuable site such as the Statistical Sources on the Internet site (u of mich) isn't even mentioned. Worse yet, why isn't there any mention of the university library and all of its far better business research databases. I could find more information related to this case in sources such as Company and Business Resource Center, ABI/Inform, or Business Source Elite than in all of the web sites mentioned in this module. I think it needs to be reconsidered as a Merlot resource.
