MCOB Learning Resource Center (LRC) Resources: Entrepreneurship

This guide is to inform and update the Mitchell College of Business students and faculty of the resources and services available in the business learning resource center. [Originally created by Marty Branch, Business Librarian]


We are fortunate to have the Carl C. and Jewel O. Melton Center for Entrepreneurship that focuses on business studies and research in this area.  

This page is to assist those students taking courses in Entrepreneurship and should also review the resources on the page in this guide titled "Small and Local Business" Resources.
