Introduction to Leadership Print Page


The AHC librarians have put together this LibGuide to help you find library resources related to leadership and management.

Please ask us for help - that's why we are here! Hours and contact information are on the right side of this page.


Research Tips

Use the library catalog to find materials written by or about a leader!

  • If you are looking for materials written by a particular leader, do an AUTHOR search. Format is last name, first name.
  • If you are looking for materials about a particular leader, do a SUBJECT search. Format is last name, first name.

General Leadership Books

Most print books on general leadership topics have call numbers beginning with HD57.7 although you will also find some materials in the psychology area (BF). Leadership books that pertain to a particular business or industry (like nursing or education) will be found with other books on that industry.

In 2010, the library purchased a set of eBooks on leadership and management through EBSCOhost. This collection contains over 40 ebooks.

Listed below are just a few of the library's print and electronic books on general leadership issues.
