Finding Business Books: Home

This guide contains helpful catalog links and search tutorials to help you find business books.


You can search the library catalog, TOPCAT, by industry, topic (marketing, small business, leadership), industry, or title to find books.  TOPCAT will retrieve books (and a small number of print journal titles) that are held in the Alverno College Library.  It will also search in the libraries of the  SWITCH Consortium.  (You can place a hold on books from these colleges and have them delivered to Alverno.)

The library also has a collection of electronic business books that you can search a view online or download.  You can  search for these using topic or industry keywords.

See the links and tutorials below to get started searching for books.  You can also contact a librarian (see right) with any questions or to get assistance finding books.

The library has a number of electronic encyclopedias and dictionaries that cover a wide array of business topics.  Click the links below to get lists of these books.
