Tourism Development & Management

This guide will lead you to information resources for Tourism Development & Management.

Getting Started with Reference Resources

Reference Resources: Information resources that are designed to be consulted when authoritative information or facts are needed on a specific topic. They're an excellent place to find research topics or to get background information for a project. Reference resources include dictionaries, encyclopedias, directories, bibliographies, handbooks, annuals, directories, statistics, atlases, and almanacs. You can find print reference resources in the Reference departments within the various ASU Library, or you may use the links to full-text electronic reference resouces, below.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
