Using and Referencing Business Resources

The School of Management has many specialist resources and databases and information can be found in a variety of formats, reports, case studies, datasets etc.  All of which can be found from our library guide http://libguide.swansea.ac.uk/management

However as you want to lead the reader to the correct part of the document it is preferred that the in-text citation contain enough information to locate the information.
