Books:

Books on a wide range of Business topics are indexed in Aleph, the library’s online catalog. The Books collection can be divided into two categories: Reference books, which are things like directories, handbooks, dictionaries, and encyclopedias, are for in-library use only, and circulating books, which cover all topics and may be checked out for three weeks with your college ID card.

The Aleph catalog is fully searchable by keyword, title, author, and subject. If you would like to browse the library’s holdings on a certain topic, use the following call number areas as a guide:

  • HA - books about statistics
