As the Academic Liaison for Business and Economics, I welcome questions and comments from all Business and Economics faculty as well as faculty from related fields. Please bring me any questions, concerns, or suggestions you have about library resources or services.
If you have a research question or problem that you would like to discuss with me, we can schedule a consultation session. To schedule a research consult, fill out the following form.
EndNote is a citation management software package that can help you keep your research materials organized as you research and write. Many of our Business and Economics (and other) databases will export citations directly into EndNote.
The software is available though the UK Download page.
More detailed information about Endnote is available here.

If the University of Kentucky Libraries does not have access to an article or book that you need, our Interlibrary Loan service can usually borrow a copy from another library for you to use. Information about the service is located here. If you have not used the service before, click on the "First Time Users" tab.
Information Literacy Resources
I am available for In-Class or In-Library Information Literacy Sessions tailored to your class needs. I can spend a class period (or whatever amount of time you would like) going over the library resources with your students. I am also open to opportunities for more in-depth partnering with Business and Economics faculty on more long-term research projects for your class.
Contact me via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the Information Literacy Instruction Request form.
Also, consider linking to one of our research guides through your Blackboard page -- there are several business-related subjects (including Accounting, Business, Economics, Marketing, and New Product Development). Also, if your students need help with researching basics, you can refer them to the Guide to the Research Process.
I can create an individualized course guide tailored to your specific course.
Please refer your students to me when they need research help. I am always happy to work with graduate and undergraduate students on any sort of business-related research question. They can contact me via email, phone (218-1840), or by filling out a consultation request form.
If you would like to place physical or electronic materials on reserve for your students, information is available here.
