 The HBF Research Library

About this Site

The HBF Online Library is a rich set of resources designed to serve students, faculty and staff of the Graduate School. While there are parallel sites that serve employees of the HBF Foundation, these pages are organized to provide you with the resources you need to succeed in your work at the Graduate School.


Please do not limit yourself to only those resources which are free, full-text, and downloadable in your own searches. Instead, choose the best resources from the literature on your topic, and ask for assistance to gain access to materials you cannot retrieve on your own. 

On this page, you will:

  • learn how to contact the librarian for research support

  • learn how to use this site

  • have access to a list of frequently asked questions

  • access the various library pages
