Management and Organization

Getting Started

The purpose of this guide is to provide an introduction to the resources made available by the Mahaffey Business Library for research in the subject of management and organization. Resources described in the upcoming pages will cover topic areas such as leadership, management, human resources, and organizational structure. As an introduction, this guide is not meant to be comprehensive, so if you have any trouble finding what you are looking for feel free to ask a business librarian for help.

Dictionaries and Encyclopedias

Dictionaries and encyclopedias often provide excellent starting points when conducting research in management and organization subjects. Dictionaries can help clear up ambiguity with jargon that frequently appears in management and organization texts. Encyclopedias can also provide context to common concepts, organizations, people, and events in the study of management and organization. Each of these resources may help to refine a search strategy and provide inspiration for keywords to inform your future searching.
