Economics

Guide to the most useful print and electronic resources for locating information on a variety of economics-related topics.

Welcome

Scrabble tiles spelling economics.This guide focuses on economics and economics-related information resources that are available to the IUPUI community. These resources support the curriculum and economics-related research.

Economics is a multifaceted discipline. There is no single section in the library; resources may be found throughout the collection and in various formats. Study and research in economics is often interdisciplinary, so relevant information also may be found in sources that are not strictly economical.

Off-Campus Access to Library Resources

Most library resources are IP-restricted. This means that, while on-campus, you can connect to any resource; but if you are off-campus you won't. Luckily, there are multiple ways to access library resources while off-campus.

  1. Connect to resources like databases and journal articles from the library's web page. Once you click on a database or e-journal link, there will be a pop-up screen where you log-in to authenticate yourself as being affiliated with IUPUI. As long as you keep your browser window open, you should not have to re-authenticate.
  2. Set up a VPN link. For the most reliable connections across the widest range of platforms and network configurations, UITS recommends connecting to the VPN with the Pulse Secure SSL VPN client. The benefit to this method is that as long as you are logged in, you can open and close browser windows just as you would on-campus.
  3. Set up a secure Citrix receiver link on mobile devices to browse resources directly and run IUanyWare Software virtually.
