The Management, Economics, and Government Information (MEGI) section of BYU’s Harold B. Lee Library will be dissolved on June 22nd, 2009. The MEGI service desk on the 1st floor of the library will be closed, and removal of the MEGI reference collection is in process.
In its place we are pleased to announce the Business and Economics Library. The Business Librarians, Leticia Camacho and Andy Spackman, will be housed in new offices in the northern (new) portion of the library, rooms 1211 and 1212. We will retain student assistants who will continue to provide frontline research help both in person and online. These students, along with the library’s Bloomberg terminal, will be located in room 1210.
We hope this change will cause minimal inconvenience, and we believe that less dependence on a localized service desk will allow us and our student assistants to more effectively reach into the Marriott School of Management and the Department of Economics in order to offer library resources, services, and instruction at the point of need. Items in the reference collection will either be replaced with electronic versions, or placed on the regular shelves where they can be checked out without the current restrictions. In both cases these key titles will become more accessible to students and faculty.
Please contact us with any questions.
