Financial Literacy and Personal Finance

Resources highlighting Ingram Library resources related to gaining basic information literacy. This guide was prepared by the students of LIBR2100 during Spring 2021.

Access to Curated List of Business Databases

Ingram Library provides many databases that include a wealth of information for anyone seeking to become financially savvy.  

The database list at the link below was compiled the LIbrary's subject specialist in Business.   

Please note that many databases are licensed for UWG students, faculty and staff and may require logging in with a UWG NetID

Search Hints

When searching in the databases, consider using the word "AND" to combine search terms to make your search more specific.  For instance, rather than just typing in "Taxes", indicate what you want to know, in particular, about a specific element of taxation. 

Samples of how to combine terms:

  • Taxes AND Withholding.  
  • Retirement AND Taxes
  • Taxes AND Tax Brackets
  • Taxes AND Deductions
  • Taxes AND Self Employment

This strategy works with other elements of personal finance too.  Be creative and know you can always ask a Librarian for assistance with developing search terms.  

  • Personal Budget AND Emergency Fund
  • Student Loans AND Prequalifying for a Mortgage.
