Here are a few pointers to get a head start:

Are you in the job search mode yet?

Stop by on the ground floor of the library to check out our job search corner. Last year’s most popular titles: Ace Your Case, Case in Point, Crack the Case.

Looking to improve your Français, Italiano, or Deutsch to ace the 3rd language requirement?

Check out our language books, here is a selected list. For more material on various languages, just use the Library catalogue.

What about textbooks?

Most recent editions of textbooks cannot be checked out of the library, however, you are welcome to pick one up from the shelves on the ground floor and read it “in house”. No need to carry these heavy items around everyday. We also have a small selection of e-textbooks (look for the ‘online access’ mention).

Where can I find articles on a topic? How do I start researching a company?

You can start on this databases page, use these research guides or video tutorials.  If you want to know how to get full text articles from the Harvard Business Review or the Financial Times, create a target list of companies, find SWOT analyses and more, contact the research librarians.

How do I contact you?

The Doriot Library is staffed Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 6:00pm. Contact the information desk during these hours or contact a specific person/department using the staff directory page.

We look forward to seeing you,

Blockchain revolution:

how the technology behind bitcoin is changing money, business and the world

Don and Alex Tapscott

Doriot and Tanoto Libraries

HG1710 .T37 2016

 

Over the past 30 years, no theorist of the digital age has better explained the next big thing than Don Tapscott. For example, in Wikinomics, Tapscott was the first to show how the Internet provides the first global platform for mass collaboration. Now, he writes about a profound technological shift that will change how the world does business–and everything else–using blockchain technology, which powers the digital currency Bitcoin.

The Internet as we know it is great for collaboration and communication, but is deeply flawed when it comes to commerce and privacy. The new blockchain technology facilitates peer-to-peer transactions without any intermediary such as a bank or governing body. Keeping the user’s information anonymous, the blockchain validates and keeps a permanent public record of all transactions. That means that your personal information is private and secure, while all activity is transparent and incorruptible–reconciled by mass collaboration and stored in code on a digital ledger. With its advent, we will not need to trust one another in the traditional sense, because trust is built into the system itself.

Tapscott, writing with his son Alex, a financial analyst and technologist, argues that the blockchain will shape the next era of prosperity–in finance, business, healthcare, education, governance, and beyond.
