Business Resources

This guide presents business and related resources at the James E. Shepard Memorial Library at North Carolina Central University. Keep in mind that some of the greatest resources are people and the Shepard Library staff are available to assist you.


The Shepard Library subscribes to several e-book collections. The advantage of an e-book is that it is always on the 'shelf' and available to you. Some of the collections require you to register to have access to the collection. This registration is free and often provides you access to advanced functions. The collections listed below have the highest concentration of business books.

Finding Books

Books about business can be found in two main ways: by searching the NCCU CATALOG and by browsing the library's collection. When searching the online catalog, a basic search will let you search by keyword, title, author, subject heading or ISBN. An Advanced Search will let you search by a combination of these fields, as well as by format, language, location, and date.

The following Library of Congress classifications may be useful when browsing the shelves at the Shepard Library for additional materials on business.
