Business: Books

A guide to resources for business research.

Using Subject Terms

Almost all books in the catalog have subject terms.  These terms tell you what the book is about - more so than just looking at the title.  If you've found a helpful book that covers the topic you need, do a new search with the subject terms attributed to it and you'll find more relevant resources.  For any topic you want to research, there is an appropriate subject term that combines elements such as the concept(s), source types, and geographic location.

Examples: 

Industrial management

Business & Economics - Time Management

Marketing - Research

Labor - United States - Statistics

You have many options when it comes to finding and using books. The Grafton Library Discovery Service (GLDYS), allows you to search for books and ebooks both here at Grafton library and in libraries around the world. If you're just looking for books, make sure to pay attention to the limiters on your search, because GLDYS also allows you to search for articles and video materials.
