MGT 301 Business Communication, Reber, fall 2022: Books

Books / E-books

Books are longer works with room to go into depth on a given topic. 

Bibliographies found in books can be one great way to identify relevant peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles.

Often with a narrow research topic, you have to think in terms of a broader topical area that your topic might fit within in order to find books that would contribute to your topic.

At Murphy Library, most books are arranged on the shelf by the Library of Congress Classification System.

Murphy Library's book holdings can be found using the Murphy Library Catalog.

Be sure to limit to UW-La Crosse Books & Media (or to UW System Books & Media).

Find Books using the Library Catalog

The Catalog is the inventory of all holdings in the collections of Murphy Library. 

Every item in our collection was selected by a member of the UWL community, usually librarians or other faculty members, for use by members of the UWL community.

Murphy Library includes:

  • Books, videos, maps, government documents, periodical (journal, magazine, newspaper) subscriptions, archival collections, and more!

  • Both physical and online holdings

  • Both purchased and leased access online holdings

Online items can be accessed right from the catalog.

Physical items are shelved in Murphy Library using call numbers, usually the Library of Congress Classification System.

There are several search "profiles" in this system.  The "UW-La Crosse Books & Media" scope is the one that is the Murphy Library Catalog!
