Owing to last year’s success, Blackwell’s bookshop will be returning to the Library on Monday 9th January.  Students recieve 5% discount from any purchase.

Core textbooks are stocked as well as secondhand titles.

Owing to recent subscription changes, we no longer have access to mad.co.uk on the e-library but we retain subscription to its journals, Design Week (available in Business Source Complete and Centaur Communications Limited) and Creative Review  (Business Source Complete and Centaur Communication Limited).

Discussion about money and football has dominated the headlines since Murdoch’s Sky Sports cash injection into Premier League TV rights during the 90s. Likewise, there’s been a lot of student-led demand for football and business books lately, and one of our latest purchases, Dobson & Goddard’s 2011 popular eBook The economics of football offers academic economic insight into the ‘beautiful game’. There’s so much here for any business student interested in football, not only covering English football, but across the globe, including Germany and Brazil. If you want to learn about determining players’ salaries at the top flight, forecasting models for football match results, game theory and football games, the accumulative match day income of the ‘Big Four’, the much-debated phenomenon of referee behaviour at football matches, measuring managerial influence upon club performance, betting-odds, and of course, the economic impact of the World Cup mega-event, then access this book via the Library Catalogue (www.library.lincoln.ac.uk) search for the title.
