Virtual Business Information Center

The Virtual Business Information Center (VBIC) is a collection of electronic and print business resources intended to provide research assistance to users seeking authoritative business information.  It provides links to Internet resources and commercial databases, as well as some print sources available in the UMD libraries.

The VBIC site includes links to Internet resources and commercial databases, as well as some print sources available in the University of Maryland libraries. The site was initially developed in 1998 by Dr. Eileen Abels, a professor in the College of Information Studies, with support of the Robert H. Smith School of Business. Currently the site is maintained by the University of Maryland Libraries.

VBIC is under continual development, both in content and design, in order to respond to the information needs of the target audience. Please contact the VBIC team (Zaida Diaz - zdiaz@umd.edu and Lily Griner - griner@umd.edu) with any comments or suggestions for improvement.
