What's her business going to be doing? How much experience does she have? This is going to sound pretty bad, but if she's really new to business management/ entrepreneurship, I'd consider getting one of the for dummies books. Definitely don't stop the reading there, but it may be a good start.

Yeah, I have my own personal research library :) College is also a great place to start a business, so many resources! I'd also recommend she'd check to see if there are any student orgs she could join. And if the school has a business program she should check announcements for guest speakers and go to any she may be interested in, if allowed.
