New development resources available to Purdue faculty, staff
Purdue University Libraries has collaborated with Purdue's Human Resources Leadership and Organizational Development (LOD) to acquire a subscription to Business Book Summaries -- a collection of concise, comprehensive summaries of various business books.
Access to this resource, which is available to all faculty and staff on the West Lafayette campus, expands employees' personal resource collection and aids organizations in educating and training leaders and staff on key relevant business topics. Topics covered include communication, diversity, global business, leadership and management.
Subscribers can create a personal account to save their preferences, organize their folders or create email alerts. Subscribers also can read and/or listen to more than 2,000 summaries, browse more than 20 categories, and translate summaries into 32 different languages. Users of iPhones can download the Business Book Summaries App for access on the go.
Business Book Summaries can be accessed at the following locations:
* LOD's Core Services website at www.purdue.edu/hr/lod/.
* Libraries' list of databases, available at www.lib.purdue.edu/find/databases.
* An organizational leadership resource guide created by Libraries in collaboration with LOD, available at http://guides.lib.purdue.edu/workforcedevelopment.
