ECON 270: Economics of the Public Sector

For Professor Jenny Bourne - Fall 2019

Welcome to Library-based Research!

For this course you will need to do research using many types of materials. This guide will provide access to many of the materials you need, and will suggest other places you might find helpful. Make an appointment with me to get together and explore strategies for doing library-based research.

My contact information is on the left-hand side of this page, but feel free to contact any of the reference librarians on duty at the Research/IT desk on 4th Libe.
