Lending & Circulation

Our Circulation staff provide assistance in finding, accessing, and circulating library materials. Each semester, the Management Library maintains an extensive collection of course reserve books and packets (available for 2-hour loans), as well as career related materials, and the latest business journals and news.

Research Support

The Management Library's research staff supports the business research and teaching efforts of Johnson students and faculty. Our subject experts provide research assistance in person, by email mgtref@cornell.edu, by phone (607-255-6949), or via webconferencing. Working with faculty members, school staff, and club officers, we prepare customized training sessions covering course-specific, job search, and general business research skills. In addition, the library offers a variety of workshops each semester to provide students with the business research skills they will need - at Cornell and throughout their careers.

Many of the common questions that we receive have been compiled into a collection of Frequently Asked Questions. These FAQs cover a wide variety of topics and serve as an excellent starting point for business research.

Be sure to include the library workshops in your busy schedule, because the investment you make today in the library will provide great dividends later.
