Finding International Business Books

UK Libraries has a large collection of books on international business topics. To find books, search in UK Libraries' InfoKat Discovery:

InfoKat Discovery

To search for books on a particular topic, enter your subject term into the search box (ex. Marketing) and search within the 'Anywhere in the record' field. Your results will be displayed in order of relevance. You can also resort them so that the most recent items are at the top by changing the "Sorted by" box from "Relevance" to "Date-newest."  

To find all of the books on a particular topic, not necessarily those owned by UK Libraries, try searching in WorldCat (FirstSearch), which is a global catalog of library collections:

Books owned by UK Libraries will be marked "UK Main Campus" and can be located using the link to InfoKat Discovery (View Now).  Books not owned by UK Libraries can be requested through the link to UK's Interlibrary Loan service, ILLiad.
