The Department maintains three Internet-connected classrooms equipped with twenty PCs each. Two are located in NI004 and NI006 just a few short feet from the Department offices, while the third is located in Sampson 101. In addition to typical programs such as Microsoft Office, our computers are also installed with statistical and computational software such as STATA and MatLab. These rooms are used for teaching SE331 Economics Statistics, SE445 Econometrics, and depending on the availability, sections our upper division electives and some sections of the research seminar SE475.
The library has an extensive collection of books and professional journals in economics. In addition, online access to the full text of many journals and professional publications is provided through JSTOR, Business Source Premier, and Standard and Poor’s. All of these services are accessible through the economics link on the library's homepage. A full time Economics Reference Librarian is available to meet for research consultation. Students can also access EconLit, which is a comprehensive, indexed bibliography for selected abstracts of the world's economic literature. It includes coverage of over 400 major journals as well as books, working papers, dissertations and conference proceedings. All majors should be thoroughly familiar with this database. The library's economics page also includes links to numerous data sources and other resources of interest to economics students.
