Classroom Support

  • Reserve material can be put on reserve at the Business Library , such as,  books and articles.  Please bring items to the library or contact Ellen Riney.
  • Class Instruction. We can come to your class and present a brief introduction to relevant resources. If you prefer, we can focus on a specific resource (how to use Bloomberg, SDC Platnum etc). If you don’t have any class time to spare, we can still tailor a condensed resource guide for a specific project or assignment. (Example: Mergers and Acquisitions Info Sources)

  • Coordinating Make-up exams. We can make exams available to your students and hold the results in a folder until you pick them up. Students take the exams within the library on the honor system.

Research Support
