The Wentworth Alumni Library organizes its books via the Dewey Decimal system. Each book is assigned a number that corresponds to its subject, and the numbers are put simply in numerical order on the shelves. The library collects thousands of books to support Wentworth's majors.
Some important number ranges in the areas of business and management are:
330-333.9 = Economics
650-651.1 = Personal success in business (including interviewing)
658-658.9 = General management
Within these range are many numbers tied to specific subjects (since a decimal numbering system is easily expandable). For instance, the number 658.402 is for teams in the workplace and the number 658.404 is for project management.
Please contact a librarian if you need more information.
Design Attitude makes the compelling argument that any firm in any profession in any land will be better equipped for the 21st century world of business if they introduce into their organizations the attitudes, behaviours, skills, and mindset - in sum, the culture - of the design profession. Kamil Michlewski describes the rise of the design profession and its impact on organizational cultures; at the heart of the book, however, are the five design profession behaviours that offer a blueprint for transforming the traditional company into an innovative, daring, and growing organization.
Features thousands of full-text journals, dissertations, working papers, country-and industry-focused reports and key business and economics periodicals such as The Economist and Sloan Management Review, and major news sources like the Wall Street Journal.
