"The best way to predict the future is to create it."
- Peter Drucker
This month Marymount Library is emphasizing all things entrepreneurial. This includes showcasing library resources for entrepreneurs available both electronically and in print. Here are a few of the resources we have on this exciting topic:
Books: We have several entrepreneur books, including: Bill Gates Business @ the Speed of Thought, The Search for Social Entrepreneurship, and The Entrepreneur Next Door. These titles represent just a small sample of the more than hundreds available resources on this subject in our catalog.
eBooks: We have several about entrepreneurship that are available electronically through the library. Titles include: In The Name of Entrepreneurship, Linking Entrepreneurship Education to Graduate Education, and Making Ecopreneurs: Developing Sustainable Entrepreneurship. The library has access to over 1,200 eBooks related to entrepreneurship available through ebrary.
We also have access to over 300 audio/visual items on the subject of entrepreneurship available through streaming via Films on Demand. Film titles like Eco-preneurs: business goes green, Capitalize on your Investment: Veterans in Business, still serving America, and Collaborative Entrepreneurship, represent just a few to choose from. All of these great resources can be found via the library catalog.
e-Resources: You have access to multiple databases for finding business related information, including company profiles (e.g. Hoover's, First Research, Lexis Nexis); industry data and statistics; (e.g. Statistica, Statistical Insight); and databases for business reference and news (e.g. Business Source Elite, Credo Reference, ProQuest Library: Business).
This library's recognition of Entrepreneurship also coincides with Marymount California's partnership with the San Pedro Chamber of Commerce in bringing you the Munch & Learn lecture: Five Qualities of Successful Entrepreneurs. This lecture is on Thursday, November 14, 2013 - 11:45 am to 1:00 pm. Information on the event can be found at here.
