Library To Ring in New Academic Year With New Name

The University of Illinois renamed the library facilities associated with the College of Business effective with the 2004-05 academic year. Becky Smith, head of the unit and an associate professor of library administration, announced the new name -- the Business and Economics Library (BEL) -- in an email to faculty and staff earlier this month. The new name better reflects the services and collections available to the College and to the Department of Economics.

Smith said that students and faculty have been enthusiastic about the name change, which was suggested by a College of Business student who serves on a library advisory committee.

BEL is located in the east side of the main library. The library website is
