Tips for searching for Books on Business Law

Try a simple search: (By putting the terms in quotes, it forces the system to look for both words together.)

  • "business law"
  • "commercial law"
  • "contract law"
  • "dispute resolution"
  • "legal ethics"

Once you've run a search, use the "Refine My Results" options on the left side of the page.  It's a quick way to drill down to the most useful results without paging through a lot of items you're not really interested inOptions often include:

  • resource type (book, article)
  • library (UW Tacoma)
  • creation date
  • language
  • topic

How to find eBooks

1. Type your title or topic into UW Libraries Search.
