Business library gets new name

The Center for Business Information in Woodruff Library has been renamed and will now be known as the Library for the Goizueta Business School. "The new name... successfully co-brands CBI and the Goizueta Business School while expressing the relationship between the school and its library," said business librarian Frank Vuotto.

In other news, the library's course research aids (available on the web at <www.emory.edu/LIB/CBI/rsch.htm>) are included in an article in the August 1999 issue of Econtent. Also, the library has added several new business databases to its collection of electronic resources, available at <www.emory.edu/ LIB/CBI/ resource.htm>, including full-text articles of thousands of trade magazines and newsletter pages.

MiniMed School announces fall dates

The Emory MiniMedical School is returning for its sixth year with classes beginning Sept. 28 and running for eight Tuesday evenings through Nov. 16.

The course, part of the Evening at Emory program, brings in medical school faculty to teach basic information in how the human body works, what can go wrong with it and what people can do to keep themselves and their families and communities healthier. When the fifth class ended last November, there were more than 2,500 MiniMedical School "graduates" of the introductory 101 course.

Since there is no prerequisite for enrolling, previous participants have spanned a wide range of ages and educational backgrounds. Tuition for the 101 course is $75, which provides a textbook with specially written handouts and illustrations to reflect the weekly topics covered. Graduates receive T-shirts and diplomas. For more information, contact Evening at Emory at 404-727-6000.
