Selection of resources on Economics, Accounting, and Business

Electronic Books (ebooks) Databases

In addition to traditional print resources, the Hunter College Libraries provide access to a large number of electronic books, or e-books. E-books can be located by conducting a search in CUNY+, the same way that print titles can be searched.

Additionally, there are several databases of e-books that can be searched independently. I've listed several below that contain materials related to Accounting and Economics. All of the following databases can be located alphabetically by title in the list of databases on the Libraries website.
