Welcome to the guide for Management

I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research in Management.  I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources.

I am also available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research related to Business.  You may also contact me to schedule research workshops for classes or to suggest items for purchase.
