Welcome!

The Pomerantz Business Library is here for you!

Excellent Space

For serious quiet, just head to the 4th floor and choose from a soft seat, carrel, or table—with plenty of room to spread out.

If you would like to meet with classmates, work on a project in a group room, or just grab a smoothie at Pat’s Too café, visit the 3rd-floor BizHub.

Pi Day

Celebrate Pi and Eat Pie

Come and enjoy delicious pie bites at the Business Library on Friday, March 9th, in recognition of Pi Day!  March 14th is the official celebration.  However, since most people will be away on spring break, the Libraries are honoring the holiday early.  Luscious treats will be available after 8 am.

Other campus libraries celebrating are Hardin, Sciences, and Engineering.

“Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.” – www.piday.org
