When you are new to a topic, library-subscribed reference sources can help you define key terms and gain a general understanding. These are similar to Wikipedia, except that they are more authoritative. You can use such sources in your assignments with confidence.
Here are some reference sources that are relevant to Finance and Information Systems Management:
Lookup a word / term / concept (e.g. Mutual funds, commodities, liquidation, venture capital, greenmail):
Understand a topic / concept (e.g. Credit rating agencies, Bulls, bears and stags, principles of corporate finance, financial systems):
After conducting some preliminary research, you can formulate a clear, well-structured research question.
Use the resources described in this guide to search for books, articles, reviews, and conference papers.
Work through the sources that you find systematically. Look for both quality and quantity in sources. Can you find enough sources to provide you with a reliable picture of what has been confirmed, and also with what remains uncertain or not-yet-published?
When in doubt, ask a librarian! Below are some recommended books to help you kick-start your research projects!
