Library Orientation Exercise Creation - Library & Information Science discipline

Investigation #2: Library Orientation Exercise Please create a MEANINGFUL library orientation exercise for a particular group of library users of your choosing. You might select, for example, college freshmen composition students; history majors; senior citizens; high school students; international students; gays and lesbians; law students; medical students; the disabled; or members of the public with limited English language skills. The exercise should consist of ten questions for your user group to answer and should be designed to help this group of users get up to speed in a large public or academic library. Give your exercise a title that makes clear for whom it is intended. For example, "Library Orientation Exercise for Three-Toed Sloths." Please do not conceive of this assignment as a "scavenger hunt" or "treasure hunt." I avoid the terms "scavenger hunt" and "treasure hunt" because inevitably such titles encourage their designers to send people looking for information that will never be important to them. People forced to do meaningless searches will wind up hating the library and librarians because they will feel their time has been wasted. Along with each question you pose for your users you should write a note to me stating why you think this is a worthy question for these users. For example, is it designed to get the user familiar with the opac generally? with how to do keyword searching? with how to truncate? with how to limit by language, medium, date, location? with how to use LC or other subject headings? with how to physically locate and borrow a book? with searching a particular database (and why THAT database)? with displaying, emailing, or printing citations, abstracts, or full-text? with the difference between Google and the free resources to which it provides access versus fee-based library databases or library catalogs (or both)? with what an index is and why it's important? with what a bibliography is and why it's important? This paper will be graded on the quality of your questions based on your ability to justify their usefulness to the users you have targeted.

Comparison of tesco and oxfam
FINDINGS: I have chosen two contrasting organizations TESCO and Oxfam. Tesco is a shopping mart where we can buy our important things. It can even be define as a global grocery and basic merchandising seller headquartered in UK. Sir Jack Cohen founded Tesco in 1919, when he started out to sell extra food products from a stall in the East End of London. Tesco first came out above a shop in Edgware in 1929 and since then the company is continuing to grow and developed. Tesco is the third largest retailer on the globe measured by income Tesco private limited firm (PLC) is the biggest super mart in UK which has 29% of shares in market compared to other companies like asda which has 17% stocks in market. PLC private limited company and don't allow its shares on the market publically. Plc company makes earnings more than general population companies.
