The Quinlan School of Business is launching an inaugural Case Competition this week. For this competition, undergraduate students are being asked to research company and industry information related to a case study, which will be released to them at midnight tonight. Details on the Competition can be found on the Quinlan Case Study website – http://www.luc.edu/quinlan/casecomp/. There are 20 teams of 3 to 5 students signed up for the competition.

The pertinent information for all Reference staff is that the case will be released at midnight tonight and students have until Monday morning to do research and prepare a presentation. Presentations will take place at WTC all day on Monday. Since it is an undergraduate competition, we anticipate that many students will be doing research at LSC, especially during the weekend, though a fair amount may come down to WTC to do it. In any case, I have been asked to put together a Research Guide specifically for the Quinlan Case Competition. The Quinlan Case Competition Research Guide is here – http://libguides.luc.edu/QuinlanCaseCompetition.

The Quinlan Case Competition organizers are also posting the link to the guide in the Blackboard Community for the competition. Please share this information with anyone who might be working at the Reference Desk between now and Monday.
