Hi! I am Kathy Wu, the Government Information and Economics librarian. If you need any kind of help at all (from: "would you just show me how to find my way around the library?" to "I need help with this research..."), please don't hesitate to ask me. Email me to set up an appointment. I look forward to working with you!
River Campus Libraries provides access to over one million ebooks covering a large variety of disciplines and publishers. Because our ebooks are available through different databases and websites, the easiest way to find an ebook in UR’s collection is to start on the library's homepage and choose "Library Catalog" from the dropdown box.
To narrow your search to ebooks, choose the Click to access resource and Book/eBook filters from the options on the left-hand side of your results (Show Me)...or use the search box below.
The library also has several collections of ebooks that are worth searching in for your topic. While books in these collections are pulled into all of our catalog searches, relevant titles can sometimes get buried within thousands of results. Try searching these databases directly for ebooks on your topic:
The University Libraries have license agreements with JSTOR , ScienceDirect and other publishers that allow access to many full-text journals via the web. These selected online journals can be accessed from any computer at the University. If you are off-campus, the first time you click one of these links, you should be prompted to enter your NetID and password to complete the connection, and then be passed to the publisher website. From off-campus, you must use these links so that you can be authenticated and given access to the journals and the Handbooks in Economics series.
These links are checked and updated periodically, but if you get "404 not found" or other errors, please email me .
Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization (1980 - )
Oxford Economic Papers (1938 - ) Operations Research Letters (1981 - )
Theory and Decision (1970 - )
Weltwirtschaftliches Archiv ( 1913 - 2002 )
The following link provides access to Economics (and some Finance or Accounting) working papers websites. If the full papers are not available on the web, the site will usually tell you how to order a hardcopy (and this service is usually free). If the University of Rochester has printed copies of a paper series, the call number is provided.
