General Business Research

Develop a broad understanding of your topic by locating and reading a book. Books are available in both print and digital (e-book) formats. In addition to our library, LCC students may borrow books from academic libraries throughout Ohio using the OhioLINK system.

The Lakeland Catalog lists books held in the Library's collection.

Some tips for searching the Library catalog:

  • Use a Keyword search to find books about a certain topic.
  • Use a Title search to find a specific book when you have the title.
  • Use the Author search to find books written by a certain author.
  • Click the Subjects of useful titles to find books on related subjects.
  • Browse the library shelves around the call numbers that relate to your topic to find additional materials. Business and related topics are primarily shelved in the HB - HJ call number range.

Lakeland Community College is part of a larger library consortium called OhioLink.  If the Lakeland Library doesn't have the book that you want, you can request it for free through OhioLink.  It takes a bit longer to get the book this way, so make sure you have a few days head start.

College research often requires in-depth analysis of your topics. Enter keywords related to your business topics into the databases to find specific, detailed research and review articles.

For the most effective searching, remember to utilize search techniques such as phrase searching, Boolean operators, and truncation. For more information on any of these search techniques, please refer to Lakeland's Research Process Guide or see a librarian for assistance.
