Economist Intelligence Unit Cancellation

As of tomorrow, March 30,2013, access to our subscription to the EIU (Economist Intelligence Unit) database will be discontinued. We have found that this move is necessary given limited resources and price increases that come with our continuing subscriptions.

Here are other resources that we currently offer to the Ross Community that provides data similar to what EIU offers. These include:

Country Overview Reports
Business Monitor Online
GMID Passport (Euromonitor) - http://www.bus.umich.edu/kresgelibrary/GotoResource.asp?71
Marketline Country Reports (Datamonitor)

2012 Kresge Library Annual Report Now Available

We are pleased to announce the availability of the 2012 Kresge Library Annual Report. This is the sixth report from Kresge and it showcases the activities and accomplishments of the amazing staff at the library. You can read about our reference interactions with students, faculty and staff; support for MAP and other action-based learning programs; scholarship produced by Kresge librarians; and programs such as our second annual food drive.

In addition, we have a special section where we showcase our work to support for the four pillars of the Ross School of Business’s Strategic Plan: (Positive, Boundaryless, Analytic and Action).

Here are links to the current and older annual reports from Kresge:

The accomplishments recorded in this annual report are possible through the hard work and dedication of the 21 staff and librarians at Kresge. We are also grateful to the work of our part-time student employees and supervisors that keep us running 109.5 hours a week during the Fall and Winter terms at Kresge.
