Answer:

Public and school libraries have a wealth of resources as well as some hospital libraries. You can do online research, but it is recommended you use vetted resources through a library (print or online) or databases such as Google Scholar. The common databases for health sciences are EBSCO databases such as MEDLINE, Academic Search Complete, Alt HealthWatch, CINAHL, and Health Source. Gale Health and Wellness is another product. Online government websites such as CDC.gov and National Institutes of Health (NIH.gov) are also good sources.

Answer:

It depends on the type of librarian you want to be. There are many opportunities for information professionals (librarians). You will be able to find about the many types of librarians in a Master's degree program either in Library Science or Library and Information Science at an ALA (American Library Association) Accredited University. Many offer online programs. You can take undergraduate courses in library science or any discipline. The courses offered in Library Science programs vary, but are primarily around organizing data, researching, developing physical and online collections, information literacy, among others. There are many specialties as well, depending on the program offered.

Answer:

There are many online and print resources, podcasts, networking groups and business associations that can provide resources. Many libraries have research guides with these resources. The best place to start is via the Small Business Development Center through your local community college. They have free counselors sponsored by the Small Business Administration who can meet with you and help you get started.
