Business Studies: Home

Start here

The library has a variety of books, eBooks, databases, and journals relevant to Business Studies, and Accounting and Finance. This guide will point you towards those resources as well as a list of recommended online resources, and research strategies and tips. Be sure also to check out the Library Research Guide for tips on referencing and avoiding plagiarism. 

Physical items are classified using the Dewey Decimal system and so each item will have a unique call number. Users can search the catalogue using the Liberty system. Users can log in to their account and reserve items or renew (where possible) items they currently have on loan.
