The Economics collection (JBECO) is located on the second floor of the Law library. The classification scheme of the books collection is derived from the Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) classification.
A steadily increasing number of journals is available in full-text electronic format. The economics journals are mentioned on the list "Journals: Economics". You can use the search engine "Omega" to search for articles published by Elsevier, Springer and JStor.
Printed journals in the field of economics available in the Law Library can be found on the first floor in alfabetical order on journal title.
Within the university economics databases are available through "Electronic databases - Economics". An overview of all databases is available at the page "Electronic databases".
Some databases can only be used at Utrecht School of Economics (USE): the Thomson databases "Datastream" and "Mergers & Acquisitions", and the WSA data files.
The library is subscribed to the online version of the NBER Working Papers and the CEPR discussion papers.
Other Working Paper archives are available on the internet, like:
