Library News

Come in, We're Open!

The Business Library is Open for Business! Not only can you continue to reach us online via Ask a Business Librarian, now you can also come in and physically use the library again. We are operating with our summer hours (Mondays thru Fridays from 9am to 5pm) until August 23rd, 2021, when we return to Fall Semester hours.

Congratulations Graduates!  Are you ready for your library alumni status?

Cox alumni may obtain lifetime free access to most library resources when visiting the Business Library in person. Off-campus access to limited databases is available to alumni. Please complete our Business Library Alumni Card Request form and a Business Library staff member will reach out by email. The Business Library alumni cards are valid at the Business Library, Bridwell Library, Hamon Arts Library and Fondren Library. Alumni are not allowed access to The Kitt Investing and Trading Center.

Alumni can visit the SMU Libraries Alumni Services website to learn about off-campus access to specific databases for alumni as well as lending policies for other campus libraries.

Of course, you can always Ask a Business Librarian if you have any questions.
