Locating eBooks on Specific Country Business Practices

Tip: There are two very helpful ebook series available from ProQuest Ebook Central providing relevant information on doing business for many (not all) countries. They are: 

  • Passport book series (e.g., Passport India) 
  • CultureShock! book series (e.g., CultureShock! UAE)

To see other books on business etiquette beyond these series, try another search technique. 

Example: I need books on business etiquette in Mexico

  • Type business etiquette Mexico into the box and click search
  • Scroll through the titles and click the link for "Read this book"

There are other books and ebooks available through the Pepperdine Libraries beyond those in the ProQuest Central database listed above. Search the library catalog on the library home page

Example: I need ebooks on doing business in China

  • from the library home page, type business etiquette China into the box and click search
  • on the resulting screen, filter format to select eBook
