A Fourfold Investment

According to a study from the University of Texas Bureau of Business Research IC2, Texas public libraries return $464 for every $1.00 invested in them.  See the report at to learn that over 11,000 jobs depend on Texas public libraries.  What a great return on your investment!

Welcome to Houston - Business

Finding Great Information

TWU libraries at has great business resources for you when you click 'Research' on the left of the page.  Scroll down and search on Business and Business - Houston to find great information.

Find Great Articles inside the Academic Search database by putting in terms like business plan limited partnership, then narrow down to full text and the last five years, again on the left of the screen.

Write Great Papers by comparing what articles say about similar topics. Read critically to notice what is missing; did they poll older and younger customers or just one age group? Write about the differences and similarities and back up your thoughts by paraphrasing and citing the authors.

Follow Perfect Citation Style using APA 6th or other style and your RefWorks account to get the process started but check those Digital Object Identifiers closely so you will be communicating clearly.

Therapy Dogs Visit Monday 3 December

Houston Therapy Dogs Visit 

On Monday 3 December, over 150 TWU faculty, staff, students and a few visitors came to meet Buddy Joe, Casper and Doodle, members of Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs of Houston who visited our TWU Houston lobby.  These certified therapy dogs and their owner/trainers helped Business and other students learn about therapy dogs and how they help military veterans and others with PTSD, assist amputees, assist the hospitalized and other institutionalized. The visit was co-sponsored by the Student Life Houston office and the Houston Academic Resource Center.
