Bastyr University Library

Welcome to the Bastyr University Library Website. This site serves both campuses!

Business Practice Resources

This page is intended to provide resources for our graduating students who intend to set up their own practice. We know that starting a business of any kind can come with challenges, so below you will find resources for starting, growing, and nurturing your practice and/or business post-graduation.

As always, feel free to reach out to your friendly librarians if you have any questions!

Here are some books from our catalog to get you started:
