Legacy Research Guide


Dear Retail and Merchandising Students and Faculty,

Welcome to Spring 2023! With the new year has come a new librarian to support your subject area and create contemporary research guides. Please use the Westphal Research Guide box on the left to find links to guides built by your current librarian. If you prefer to continue to use this guide, it will be available as it is but will no longer be updated. Thank you so much for your patience as content is created and please feel invited to contact me with any questions. 

Warm wishes, Anna
