On Monday 16 April, over 120 TWU faculty, staff, students and a few visitors came to meet Bogie, the Irish Wolfhound who is a member of Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs of Houston who visited our TWU Houston lobby. Bogie and his owner Ms Susan Lipka 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.
The Academic Resource Center (ARC) Room 4132 (at the Houston campus) has books from TWU's School of Business and Health Administration, also. Available for you to consult in the ARC, these materials (books, audiovisuals and journals) are specially chosen by your faculty and are available to you, so come see what the ARC has to offer you.
Please know that "Textbooks, reference, non-circulating, media materials, and Houston Reserve Items may not be requested through Interlibrary Loan (ILL)."
Finding Great Information
TWU libraries at www.twu.edu/library 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.
