History of Library
The library began in 1967 with donated books and
journals from department professors, with many from
the collection of Jacob Schmookler. A fund was set up
for purchasing books and journal subscriptions, and
we still acquire books. Journals are now accessed
primarily through the University Library's electronic
collection, although we have the major economics
journals in paper from 2000-2008. There is a useful
like to our new book lists, economics journals and the
index EconLit on the website above.
I enjoyed visiting all of these libraries but the one I
didn’t like was the library in St. Thomas because it was
huge and you could get confused in it very easily if it is
the first time you visit this library. the one I liked the
most was the one in Ridgedale because I am familiar
with it and know where all the books are located.
