Mellon Library's insight:

Interesting to see what others think...  I agree to some extent with Wiafe. For some things I like that hard copy, but recently have done some research on QuestiaSchool using their online books and tools, and have found it works for me despite my initial skepticism.

A Curated Library of Resources for Startups: The Startup Library

A Curated Library of Resources for Startups: The Startup Library | Mellon Library Links | Scoop.it

Robin Good: The Startup Library is a web-based information resource for startups of all kinds offering content covering many different topics ranging from consumer digital health, to e-commerce and education technology.

 

The Startup Library organizes information and resources on sector-specific accelerators, incubators and funding sources, trend reports and statistics on various geographic regions and markets and information on relevant associations and conferences.

 

From the official site: "...the Startup Library is a collection of highly vetted resources that will enable entrepreneurs to answer common market research questions. The Startup Library is a startup too"

 

"The most valuable quality of the Startup Library is that it is a highly curatorial endeavour. In a given week, the MaRS Market Intelligence team sifts through thousands of sources of market-related information in an attempt to give MaRS clients the most up to date, relevant and usable market research to inform their decisions."

 

Source: http://www.marsdd.com/2012/10/31/perfecting-the-art-of-content-curation-with-the-startup-library/

 

The Startup Library is part of the the MaRS COMMONS, a Toronto hub or the hottest technology based companies.
