MGMT 429 Hickman: Find books

Recommended strategies and resources for the Consulting Team Project.

Why books

Books can be very helpful when you need in-depth information about a topic. Think old, well-established information. 

For example, maybe you just need to get a handle on the basics of marketing strategies.  Again, use keywords to get a variety of results on that topic. Then, limit the results in your list to Books. 

Using WorldCat Discovery to find books on a research topic

Keywords:     social media       marketing strategies


Start out using a broad-to-narrow keyword search strategy. Use one or two umbrella keywords, and narrow results with additional qualifiers. 

1. marketing strategies

2. add "social media" - notice your results are fewer yet more specific.

3. Limit to Books.

4. Review Table of Contents, Location, Status, and Call Number.

5. Copy the call number of this book and use the Call Number Locator tool to find it.

6. Citation Generator & Permalink
