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.

Getting help researching and using Library resources:

  • Look through the Finding Resources Guide for advice on getting started with searching and use the comprehensive Help sections in individual databases
  • Look out for Information Literacy, referencing and database training in your modules (if there aren't any, ask your module leader to invite us to speak at a lecture or organise a workshop)
  • Attend Information and digital literacy training in the LibSmart programme.  Upcoming workshops are listed elsewhere on this page, or see the LibSmart guide for more details. We (your subject librarians, Alice and Kanwal) run the workshops Bloomberg and, and there are many other great workshops run by other librarians
  • Drop by the LibSmart point, on the first floor of the Library, in the Learning Commons.  A subject librarian will be there Monday - Friday 1-5pm.  We (Alice and Kanwal) will let you know on Twitter @BBSLibrarian when we will be there each week.
  • We run a specialist drop-in in the Eastern Gateway outside the auditorium every Wednesday 10-11am when we don't have other commitments (we'll advertise on Twitter when we are and are not doing these)
  • Book an appointment using the link on this page. If there aren't any available then email us.
