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  https://www.tsl.texas.gov/roi to learn that over 11,000 jobs depend on Texas public libraries.  What a great return on your investment!

Finding Great Information

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.

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 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.'
