Library Resources

Emory has strong and wide-ranging collections — monographs (books, print, and electronic) and journals — in all major subfields of Economics and is always looking to improve our print and digital collections in specific areas within Economics, as needs and demands arise or may require. Please also inquire about data needs that you may have.
