Business and management: Overview


Welcome to the Business and management guide. Throughout the guide's sections you'll find our suggestions for key resources and information in this subject area.

These are a few things we think Business and Management students should be aware of:

  • the Subject Liaison Librarians, run a programme called LibSmart. This includes workshops, short LibSmart Focuses and afternoon drop-ins and cafes.  Find more information about what's happening and when on the LibSmart guide
  • your subject librarians run a drop-in, open to all students and staff at Starbucks in the Eastern Gateway building every Wednesday 10-11am.
  • we also aim to be at the shelves with Business, Economics and Finance books (HB-HF on floor 1) every Tuesday and Thursday from 2.30-3pm. (We'll let you know on Twitter @BBSLibrarian if we can't do these any week due to teaching or meeting commitments).
  • We'll put on Twitter the times we're scheduled to be available for a drop-on in in the Learning Commons (Library floor 1), or doing a LibSmart workshop you can sign up for
  • the Finding Resources Guide is a great starting point for getting started with searching.  For more help, do get in touch or make an appointment, using one of the methods detailed in the Contact Alice/Kanwal box.

To get you started, here are the key shelfmark areas for your subject. The floor information is for books; print journals will have the same shelfmark but all journals are on the third floor.
