Your Voice...

“The Alkek Library is truly the center of Texas State. My consumer behavior students learned this when they were introduced to the world of marketing databases by Charles Allan, Business Librarian. They found spending a little time learning a database was far superior to the Google search in accurately and efficiently completing research papers.”

Jay Hiebert, Lecturer, Dept. of Marketing
