Day One Readiness

Download These Apps Now!

GBL licensed apps require you to authenticate as a Goizueta student prior to use. The process varies by vendor, but the end result is the same: once you take a few minutes to set up your account, you’re good to go!   Here's our cheat sheet to get started.

Business News

Read the NYTimes.com, WSJ.com, FT.com, and your local city’s Business Chronicle


A note on The Economist:  Currently The Economist will not license the app version of The Economist to the academic community.

We do subscribe to The Economist via the Economist Intelligence Unit research platform, and you can access it there.

GBS Students Want to Know (FAQs)

Where is the Bloomberg terminal and how do I reserve time on it?

The Bloomberg terminal is located in the Business Library; you can reserve time via the online scheduler. GBL also subscribes to FactSet and Thomson ONE. GBL does not subscribe to Capital IQ. Read more.

What Business Seminars are available at GBL?

Can I locate Harvard case studies and articles in the library so I don’t have to pay for them via Study.net?

Unfortunately Harvard Publishing licenses all materials for course readings exclusively through Study.net and GBS is legally bound to comply with this requirement.  You can access HBR articles via Business Source Complete, but Harvard requires they be purchased via Study.net when readings are part of your course curriculum. Read more.

Can I find my class textbooks in the library’s collection?

Unfortunately the cost of annually purchasing updated editions of textbooks is prohibitive and would divert dollars from purchasing new databases and other important resources. Read more.

Can I access IBISWorld?

GBL subscribes to many sources of industry market analysis which we believe are more credible, including Standard & Poor’s Industry Surveys, Mintel, Gartner and Forrester. Read more.

How can I take your Advanced Google class?

Currently this class is taught as part of the BBA Business Essential Junior Seminar classes, but here is the detailed “cheat sheet.”

Proper User of GBL and Emory Libraries Subscription Databases

Emory database licensing agreements allow student usage for coursework, career preparation and personal enrichment. It is illegal to use Emory Libraries databases for your employer or internship. Both the honor code and Emory policy mandate the proper use of licensed databases.

According to Emory's Copyright Infringement Policy, students, faculty and employees are required and expected to adhere to US copyright law, which restricts reproduction, distribution, and other uses of copyrighted materials.  

Always Cite Your Sources

Don’t Plagiarize! Remember your ethical and legal copyright obligations; cite all sources you use in your presentations and reports. 

Citing Sources in your Slide Decks

Giving credit to the sources you reference in your presentation is not only about compliance with copyright laws (database vendors require complete citations as part of their licensing agreements); it’s also a critical part of building credibility and trust with your client.

This handout covers the proper formats for citing databases and Internet sources using Chicago style (also known as Turabian) on your PPT slides and  bibliographies.

Format Citations with Easy Bib Pro

EasyBib Pro will automatically generate correctly formatted citations! Fill out the form to create your bibliography or works cited page. Create an account to store citations as you work on multiple projects and reports.
