A guide to help you research your INLab topics.

Search your entrepreneurship topics in HCC Libraries with Primo

Here's an example search:

Entrepreneur* U.S. veterans (open this link to view the search)


  • The * picks up alternate endings of the root word, such as entrepreneurial, entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship.
  • The keyword "U.S." helps to focus the search to military veterans who are entrepreneurs, rather than veteran entrepreneurs who are not military veterans.

Some more examples:

Try a word or phrase for your field or specialty, plus one of the following terms:
    • Gig work
    • Part time employment
    • Flexible work
