Your librarian on Facebook: click here.

Thursday, September 4, 2008


The *best* way to contact me is via my "work" Gmail account, which I use instead of my TTU account (too much spam!).

The username portion of the email address follows the same convention as TTU accounts (firstname.lastname), so it's easy to remember:

where firstname="jake" and lastname="syma"

Sorry I had to do it that way, instead of writing it out and making it a click-able link, but the battle against email spam never ends.

There is, however, a click-able link if you go to "View my complete profile" and click the "Email" link in the top, left-hand corner of the page.

Welcome to the TTU Business and Economics Blog

Hello, my name is Jake Syma, and I am the Librarian for Business & Economics here at Texas Tech University.

If you are an undergrad, grad student, or faculty member in either the Rawls College of Business or the Department of Economics & Geography, then I am your personal librarian.

My sole (or at least primary) purpose in life is to assist you with your research in these areas.

The TTU Library pays me to facilitate the teaching, research, and scholarship missions of the University.

I am available for research consulations (one-on-one or with a group), in-library or on-site instruction sessions (e.g. in our building or in your classroom), etc.

The sky's the limit. Let me know how we can work together to make your research better.
