You can find a varied selection of print and online management books by typing in keywords about your topic in Central Search. Books can provide detailed background and in-depth historical information about any given topic. Reference refers to encyclopedias, dictionaries, and handbooks. Go to these for definitions, shorter explanations, quick historical and biographical sketches. Add the word 'reference' to your search. You may also search everything we offer at CCSU (use the online catalog as an 'academic Google") and everything other libraries within the consortium offers.
