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.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Getting help researching and using Library resources:

  • Watch the range of training, including training specifically for business students and researchers, available via the recorded training tab.
  • 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 - classes will be a mixture of online and face to face.  Upcoming workshops are listed elsewhere on this page, or see the LibSmart guide for more details. Alice, your subject librarian, runs workshops on Citation Searching and Systematic Literature Review, and occasional Bloomberg workshops. There are many other great workshops run by other librarians.
  • Get help from the librarian on duty at our LibSmart service, Monday - Friday, 1-4pm. The LibSmart point is on the first floor of the Library, near the business books.
  • Book an appointment (usually over MS Teams) using the link on this page. If there aren't any available then, book with other librarians or email Alice.
  • Email Alice saying what you'd like help with.

Search Library resources

Our discovery tool, Library Search, will look for books, journal articles and more in one quick easy search - a great place to start your research. The results list also includes full-text links to subscribed content, like articles and textbooks. 

To search Library 'Search all' you can use keywords relevant to your topic, author names or the title of the source. 


For a more comprehensive search, individual databases offer greater functionality and give full access to a tailored suite of resources for your subject. To find out the database available in your subject, look for your programme in our Subject Guides, or you can view and access all our Databases alphabetically on the Databases A-Z webpage.
