4 Things to Remember about Accessing Harvard Business Review through GBL

The answer is “Yes, but…” and that’s when things get confusing. Here’s everything you need to know about your access to…

Why doesn’t the library have more market research reports?

Why doesn’t the library have more market research reports?  I found a summary of one on Google from Research and Markets and it’s perfect for my class project. Does the library have it, or could you buy it for me? You’re right; there are thousands of market research companies and many wonderful reports with tempting…

Why doesn’t the library ever have the textbooks that I need for my classes?

A library user writes: It’s really expensive paying for textbooks for all of my classes every year, but the library never has them (other than an occasional really old edition) in their collection.

UPDATE (published August 22, 2017): The new Standard & Poor’s NetAdvantage platform now includes a “lite” version of Capital IQ.

My faculty is requiring me to use JMP and Palisade for class assignments. Do I have access to these in the Business Library? Can I download them to my laptop and work from home?

This is a great question. First, a little context: In almost all cases, either the faculty or GBS IT negotiate a set number of licenses for use by the students for class assignments. Options such as  downloading the software onto your laptop, shared licenses, (e.g. can access be shared via installation on computers or must…

I miss the tootsie rolls! What happened?

Your dentist called!  GBL has indeed quit purchasing tootsie rolls, and the candy dish is now limited to hard candy.  Although the candy is meant for eating, unfortunately many of the tootsie rolls were getting ground into the carpet, making a mess for our awesome cleaning crew.  We’ve tried to replace the tootsie rolls with…
