About the Frederick S. Pardee Management Library

The Frederick S. Pardee Management Library is named for its donor, Frederick S. Pardee, a recipient of undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Boston University School of Management. The library, opened in March 1997, is an important component in the educational program in the School of Management. Located on the west end of the second and third floors of the Rafik B. Hariri Building, the library provides study space, collaborative areas, and team rooms for group study.

The mission of the Frederick S. Pardee Management Library is to provide information resources and services in business and management in support of Boston University School of Management and Boston University research and instructional programs in these areas. The library provides an extensive collection of online and print resources in business and management- related subjects and offers information and instructional services in order to maximize the use of these materials and resources. The Management Collection Development Policy describes, in greater detail, the scope of the library collection.  The on-site collection consists of approximately 10,000 volumes; 50,000 volumes are in off-site storage and generally available within two business days.

A description of collection development and links to collections policies for other subjects are available here.

The library’s resources are supplemented by Mugar Memorial Library’s extensive research collection in the social sciences and humanities. Directions to Pardee Library and maps and floor plans to other Boston University libraries are available here.
