  • 20. 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.
  • 21. Conclusion  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.
