Center for Business Research

Information for Faculty
The CBR welcomes all Business Program faculty. Please drop in or make an appointment so we can give you a tour of the library and show you the business resources available to you. Contact Martha Cooney.

Business faculty are welcome to suggest new books and periodicals for the business collection. Contact Elizabeth Mezick for reference book recommendations and Martha Cooney for journal recommendations. To make recommendations for the circulating book collection, contact the Acquisitions Department.

Research Support
The CBR librarians can help faculty, and their assistants, identify relevant print and electronic resources for their research projects. Material from the CBR collections can be photocopied for you and charged back to your departmental budget number. Please be aware that the Library abides by current copyright law. If you do not find the material you are looking for, please contact a business librarian. Interlibrary loan is also available for items that the Library does not own.

Book a Librarian
In addition to online reference assistance, email assistance, telephone assistance, and, of course, visiting the library in person, students and faculty can also Book a Librarian to get intensive one-on-one research assistance and undivided attention. The library has many online and hardcopy resources that most people are unaware of, and the databases have advanced features for pulling up the desired results. People often think that they've tried all the possibilities and become convinced that the information that they need does not exist when there are still many more options. Please feel free to make an appointment using this form or by calling 516-299-4138 for a private consultation with a librarian.

Instruction Programs
The CBR provides instruction programs for your students. We are also available to help in planning research assignments for your students, and encourage you to share assignments with us so that we can provide an even higher level of research support.

Database Instruction for Faculty
For faculty members who want to find out more about the library's databases but can't come to us: we'll come to you. The library is offering a new program for faculty in which you can make an appointment for a librarian to come to your office at your convenience to demonstrate the latest databases. If you prefer, you can make an appointment for instruction in the library. Just email or call Jean Uhl, chair of the Library Liaison Committee (juhl@liu.edu, x2837), or Larry Kirschenbaum (ljkirsch@liu.edu, x2704) to make the appointment or for further details.

The library can place materials on reserve for classroom use. Please contact the Circulation/Reserve Department at ext. 2303 for further details on print and electronic reserves.
