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.

News: WSJ.com | FT.com | City Business Chronicles

Books (and summaries): GetAbstract | Overdrive Business Audiobooks | Business Book Summaries

Technical training: Lynda.com

Finance News and Stock Lookups:  Factset  (use the client interface for research)


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.    

Conducting Research

Consult with a Business Librarian

Your 5 Business Librarians are invested in helping you develop the skills you will need to contend with today’s complex information environment.

  • ASK a Librarian – email us at gbsaskalibrarian@emory.edu or submit your question via this form
  • We strongly recommend that you schedule a consultation rather than rely on dropping by to ensure that we can dedicate the time you need for your request.
  • Availability includes Monday-Thursday evenings to 8pm and Sat & Sun, 1-5pm during Fall and Spring semesters, and until 6PM Monday-Friday during the Summer.  

Locating eJournals@Emory

Wondering if Emory subscribes to a particular journal electronically? Trying to locate an article for which you have a citation?

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.

Can I access Wall Street analyst reports?

Yes, using Thomson ONE

Can I download business audio books to listen to during my long commute to work, or while I travel?

Yes, via Overdrive. Read more.

Where can I check-out a Business Kindle to keep up with my business reading?

Just come by the Business Library and any of the staff can help you. Read more.

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 Subscription Databases

Emory database licensing agreements allow student usage for course, career preparation and personal enrichment. It is illegal to use Emory library databases for your employer or internship.

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, but it’s also a critical part of building credibility and trust with your client.

Using Chicago (also known as Turabian) Style, this handout covers the proper formats for citing popular business research sources in your PowerPoint slide deck.

Format Citations with Easy Bib Pro

EasyBib Pro will automatically generate correctly formatted citations for you! Just fill out the form and it will help create your bibliography or works cited page. You may also create an account to store citations as you work on multiple projects and reports.
