The purpose of this site is to assist students, faculty, staff, and administrators of the School of Business, our primary clientele, and the wider University in its teaching, learning, and research efforts.
Library resources concentrate on accounting, management, Hospitality Management, marketing, international business, insurance, finance, computer and information systems analysis, business law, economics, business communications, and health services.
