This guide has been specifically created for the entrepreneur, whether just starting a new business or tweaking a current enterprise.

Resources include books available from Thompson Library (both print and digital formats), as well as journal articles, statistical information, information about existing companies and helpful information regarding legal and tax considerations as well as marketing and international aspects -- all which may be available in any of our many subscription service databases (see:  A-Z List of Databases).

Additionally, links have been included to outside resources (publicly available sites) where they may offer further insight or assistance on a question of business startup or operation.

As always, suggestions for improving this guide are always appreciated.
