Library Resources

Greetings!

My name is Chris Palazzolo (cpalazz@emory.edu; 404-727-0143) and I act as Woodruff library's liaison to the Economics department. I am here to assist faculty, graduate students, and Economics undergrads in any and all aspects of their research and teaching.

Of particular interest is our current Economics scholarship guide, which contains RSS feeds that link to the major journals in the field and their most recent table of contents and abstracts are at http://guides.main.library.emory.edu/econrss. Here you can also find tips for locating working papers, conference proceedings, new books in the Economics field, and tips and advice for citation analysis.

Note that you will need to authenticate off and on campus for access to Emory-licensed resources. You will only need to re-authenticate if you close your browser. You can always add the following to a URL to access the licensed version (in case you are being asked to pay for an article): proxy.library.emory.edu.

For example, http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com becomes http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com.proxy.library.emory.edu.

You can always bookmark your favorite journals and licensed content with the proxy address above.

Collection Highlights for Economics:

Emory has strong collections in Economics and looks to improve our print and digital collections in specific areas within Economics, as needs and demands arise or may require. Economics receives a large budget each fiscal year (upwards of $15K) to support the purchase of new collections and support the research of faculty and graduate students.

  • Handbooks of Economics: The handbooks cover a broad set of economics topics. Each chapter provides professional researchers, lecturers, and students with accurate, self-contained surveys, written and edited by the leading authorities in their field. Titles are usually updated every few years.
  • Econlit: We have access to the premier database in Economics. It contains articles, book chapters, working papers, and the like.
  • Economist Intelligence Unit (includes the Economist newsmagazine)
  • Financial Times

Other useful databases: SocIndex, Sociological Abstracts, Political Science Complete, Business Source Complete, MathSci Net, Web of Science (search for these in Databases Emory).

ECDS Data Center: support faculty and students in the identification and management of statistical information and data.

Emory has subscribed to the Sage Research Methods Online — the SRMO service is a portal for the methodology literature.

Emory has strong and wide-ranging collections — monographs (books, print, and electronic) and journals — in all major subfields of Economics.
