Organizational Behavior: Home


This guide was created to assist students with the research project in SHR 346 Organizational Behavior. General research tips and tutorials are provided to refresh your research skills, however, please do not hesitate to set up an appointment with a librarian, should you need additional help.

Can't find what you're looking for in the SU Libraries?

No library owns everything!

If we don't have what you're looking for, we'll borrow it for you from another library:

  • books
  • book chapters
  • journal articles
  • conference papers
  • technical reports
  • theses
  • standards
  • patents

This is a FREE service provided by SU Libraries through ILLiad, our automated interlibrary loan system. Some publications (e.g. journal articles) may be e-mailed directly to you as PDF files. Books need to be picked up at the Bird Library.

If you don't have an account, go to ILLiad, follow the link for "First Time Users" and fill in the form to create a new account. You'll be able to start using ILLiad right away.

Classic Catalog Search

To find the journals that SU Libraries subscribes to in accounting -- to browse, read or search individually -- select subject heading from the pull-down box. Searching the Classic Catalog by Library of Congress Subject Headings is a more precise search than trying to find these journals via more general keyword searches. Subject headings to try, for example:

  • organizational change
  • organizational behavior
Search for: in
