The Schaffner Library, located on the second floor of Wieboldt Hall, was established as a special library in economics and business in memory of Joseph Schaffner, a Chicago businessman, Northwestern University trustee and strong supporter of continuing education.
The library contains approximately 110,000 volumes and pamphlets, and it subscribes to more than 1,000 periodicals and serial publications. The library acquires most materials needed for Part-Time Program courses, and although it is not considered a research library, it does provide several bibliographic aids.
Your student I.D. card is your ticket to library privileges at the Schaffner Library and at the University Library on the Evanston campus.
All students enrolled in the Part-Time MBA Program must have access to a personal computer with Internet access.
You’ll need your computer to register for courses, download coursework, complete homework assignments, and stay in touch with your classmates. If you don’t already have a computer (or if you’re just ready to upgrade), being a Kellogg student qualifies you for certain discounts on computer hardware and software.
For your convenience, the Schaffner Library in Wieboldt Hall contains a Kellogg-only computer lab. In addition, network data jacks and power outlets are available in student breakout/meeting rooms, study carrels in the Kellogg reading room, and in some classrooms.
New students learn all they need to know about computing at Kellogg in the required technology workshop. For students who wish to learn more, additional free workshops are offered throughout the year. All sessions focus on the applications used at the Kellogg School.
