Online Investment & Financial Advice You Can Bank On
A Hands-On Internet Workshop

Can't make heads or tails out of the plethora of Internet sites offering advice on money management? In this workshop Ka-Neng Au, a Rutgers University Libraries business librarian with over 16 years experience, will guide you in identifying, evaluating, and using authoritative investment and money-management websites that provide a substantial return on the time invested in them. Participants will also receive a guided tour of the wealth of business information resources available on the Libraries Web pages.

Ka Neng Au has provided several workshops for the past few years for the Small Business Development Center of New Jersey about developing business and marketing plans. He participates with other Rutgers-Newark business librarians in offering a five-week business information literacy course that was required of all first-year MBA students this past academic year. Au is a key developer for the School of Business of the Rutgers Business CyberLibrary (see:

Ka-Neng Au is also one of the principal authors of the Libraries online Business Research Guide. The Business Research Guide has received recognition or awards from Argus Clearinghouse, the Internet Scout Project, Infomine Scholarly Internet Resource Collections, and the University of Michigan School of Information's Internet Public Library (IPL). This guide is available on the front page of the Libraries webpage, by selecting "Subject Research Guides."
