The Business Library team just finished a review of FY17. Below is an infographic highlighting our FY17 numbers. It has been a great year working with students, faculty, and staff. We are looking forward to a productive FY18 and to the opening of a new collaborative space this spring. Thank you for supporting library services!

This area includes offices, PC’s, a high-speed scanner, informal study space, and more. In addition, everyone has access to the outdoor balconies! The temporary location adjoins the stacks and quiet-study areas.

The UI Libraries, partnering with Information Technology Services, the Office of the Provost, the Division of Sponsored Programs, and the Big Ten Academic Alliance are leading an initiative to help all research active University of Iowa staff and faculty obtain an ORCID iD and/or link their existing identifier to their University of Iowa email address.
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a non-profit, platform agnostic registry of unique author identifiers. Many publishers, funders and academic institutions have already adopted ORCID and may be requiring its use in the near future.
Having an ORCID iD
- makes your work discoverable by others
- connects your research to you throughout your career, no matter how your name appears in publication
- distinguishes you from other researchers with similar names
- minimizes the time you spend filling out forms when submitting research or applying for grants
- is being required by major journal publishers and funders
- gives you access to an ImpactStory page (an altmetrics tool)
Click the green button below to sign up for your ORCID iD (Hawk ID and PW required)
To learn more about ORCiD at the UI, see the UI Libraries information page.
If you have any questions about ORCiD please contact your UI Subject Librarian.
See an example ORCID iD page.

The Business Library/UI Libraries recently acquired an online streaming license to Capitalism –a film produced and directed by Ilan Ziv.
Description from Icarus Films:
CAPITALISM is an ambitious and accessible six-part documentary series that looks at both the history of ideas and the social forces that have shaped the capitalist world. Blending interviews with some of the world’s great historians, economists, anthropologists, and social critics (view the complete list of participants), with on-the-ground footage shot in twenty-two countries, CAPITALISM questions the myth of the unfettered free market, explores the nature of debt and commodities, and retraces some of the great economic debates of the last 200 years.
Each fifty-two minute episode is designed to stand alone, making these ideal for classroom use or as an additional resource for students. More info about the episodes can be found on the Icarus Film site.
