In case you haven’t noticed, there is a new blog in town. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome the Law Librarians to the Library of Congress blog space!
In many ways there is a strong relationship between business and law. We often have visitors in our reading room conducting research for starting a business – whether this is to be a local business or in another country, business and law share material!
Here is a sample of some of the material that relates to both law and business:
- Doing business in….. (pick a country). This title provides information on regulation, industrial laws and legislation, economic indicators and analysis, and an evaluation on the “ease of doing business” within a country. (There is also a website associated with this publication: Doing Business: The World Bank Group) This is one of my personal favorites!
- Taxation. This is an area Business often receives questions on that actually belongs to Law. A search on the subject terms Taxation–Law and legislation will include country portfolios, international tax, employment related topics and much more. You may want to add some limits to the search results or include the name of a country or other jurisdiction in your search terms as the number of titles found exceeds 10,000.
- Business Law. Within this subject you will see materials in the collections of Business (LC Classification “HB” through “HJ”) and Law (LC Classification “K”). A subject search for Business Law reveals material available for an individual country or state.
