Database of the week: Business Plan Handbooks UST Libraries has added many new online databases to its collection over the summer and we will highlight them over the next several weeks in the Bulletin Today. This week’s featured database is Business Plan Handbooks. The print version of Business Plan Handbooks is a multi-volume collection of actual business plans for small businesses in many industries that long has been a staple of the UST Libraries reference collection. Now the electronic version of this unique product is available on the Web to be accessed and searched from campus or remote locations. This product includes a sample business plan template, fictional plans, a glossary of small business terms, and a directory section containing various listings of interest to entrepreneurs and consultants specializing in small business advice and planning. It is an invaluable resource for business students, especially marketing and entrepreneurship students, to study how business plans are written. For additional information, please contact a UST reference librarian at either (651) 962-5001 or (651) 962-4664. The Business Plan Handbook is available from campus and remotely with a valid UST username and password.
