Getting Started

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!

Use Library Resources and Services


Game theory is a very interesting, multi-disciplinary topic. If you search Game Theory as a Subject in UR Catalog, you'll see the results have all kinds of different call numbers and locations. Probably most of the ones you might be interested in will be classed either as HB144, located on level 300 of Rush Rhees Library, or QA269 - and located either on level 400 in Rhees, or 3rd floor in the Carlson Library. Pretty confusing, but just ask for help if you need it.

Find eJournals


The Libraries have two journals devoted to game theory, that you can access online (or in print, in either Rush Rhees or Carlson Library):

Economics EJournals & Handbooks

The University Libraries have license agreements with JSTOR , ScienceDirect and other publishers that allow access to many full-text journals via the web. These 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.

Journal Article Databases


If you need data to support your research, the libraries subscribe to a number of databases of data (numbers) rather than articles.  See the whole list at Data & Statistics Databases.

Here are some good ones to start with:
