Economics and Finance: Overview

Welcome

Welcome to the Economics and finance 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 isn'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. In addition to sessions on referencing and literature searching, we also run workshops on Data & Statistics, Bloomberg, Market Research and FT.com.
  • Drop by the LibSmart point, on the first floor of the Library, in the Learning Commons between 12.00 - 5.00pm, Monday-Friday. An Academic Liaison Librarian will be on hand to answer your questions on referencing and finding resources.
  • Make an appointment using the contact details on the right hand side.

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.
