Faculty Exams in the Document Center
Many professors make their old exams available for students to review.  Exams dating from 1992 and before are bound in volumes available in the 10th floor reading room in the Library.  Exams after 1992 were scanned into the online eLOISe system, which is temporarily unavailable due to the recent network conversion.  While the eLOISe system is unavailable, copies of post-1992 exams are available at the Library's Reference Desk on the 9th floor.

Document Center hours are listed below.

Databases Available on Information Center Home Page
The Information Center has made two databases available for on-campus use.  Colombia International Affairs Online (CIAO) focuses on international research, and includes working papers from research institutes, papers from NGOs, conference proceedings, policy briefs, and economics indicators.  EBSCOhost Web provides access to the full texts of journal articles, including large collections of business-
and health-related topics, as well as articles from mainstream periodicals.  Links to both databases can be found on the Information Center's home page,
