Albertsons Library needs your help! We are continually assessing our services, collections, and physical space, and we need input from both undergraduate and graduate students to help us plan for the future. To that end, the library is hosting two graduate student focus groups this semester:
Mon 4/14 (11:45-12:30)
Thur 4/17 (12:15-1).
Wed 4/16 (11:45-12:30)
Tue 4/22 (12:15-1)
Fri 4/25 (11:45-12:30)
Thur 5/1 (12:15-1).
All are invited, even those who rarely or never use the library! You'll be part of a small group of fellow BSU students discussing the library and library-related issues. Refreshments will be served, and we will offer participants a small token of appreciation (ie, Starbucks or bookstore gift card).

In 1994, before the US and Vietnam had normal diplomatic relations, Boise State was invited to become first American university to work in Vietnam. From a one year project to deliver our MBA degree to instructors at the National Economics University in Hanoi, Boise State's involvement grew to nine-year $8.5 million Swedish and US government funded project to help establish the country's first international standard business school.
The “ScienceDirect” package is accessible from Albertsons Library's database list (http://library.boisestate.edu/indexes/), while individual titles may be accessed via our Journal Titles list (http://journals.boisestate.edu/) . Additionally, articles in Elsevier journals are now linked directly from most discipline-specific databases by using the "Find It at Boise State University” button.
