BIG IDEAS demand reliable information. The University Libraries supports scholarship, research, and learning at UT by acquiring, organizing, preserving, and facilitating access to the world’s knowledge. The wide-ranging expertise of our librarians might surprise you.

As the business librarian, Judy Li serves the information needs of students and faculty in Advertising; Retail, Hospitality and Tourism Management; and all programs in the Haslam College of Business. As our business liaison, she provides research consultations, information literacy instruction, and collection development in those disciplines. Judy also works with MBA candidates pursuing their degrees remotely through the college’s Graduate and Executive Education program designed for working professionals.

Business information is packaged in a variety of ways. Judy’s “Business Research Center” — — is a good starting point for the researcher seeking company and industry information, economic and financial data, and other business tools. (Luckily, library subscriptions bring many valuable business sources out from behind the pay wall.)

Contact Judy (, 974-0013) with your business reference questions or to schedule a research consultation.

Judy serves on the Executive/Advisory Board of the Special Library Association’s Business and Finance Division, and on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Library and Information Science in Distance Learning.

In addition to her master’s in library and information science, Judy holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and an MBA with a concentration in entrepreneurship. She is also pursuing a PhD in information science. Judy was a research consultant in the telecommunications industry prior to receiving her MLIS. She has been a business librarian for over a decade and has worked in public, academic, and special libraries in the US, Canada, and Hong Kong.
