Welcome to Houston - Business

Finding Great Information

Business LibGuide Introduction Video


TWU Librarians help teach students how to find the information they need, helping students to become self-sufficient in information location and use. For TWU Faculty and staff, Librarians provide needed information.

Find Excellent 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.

Follow Perfect Citation Style using APA 7th 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.

TWU libraries 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. 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.

Faculty: Would you like to place specific course materials on reserve,  either in the Houston Library or electronically available 24/7? Please click HERE
