Research on library-related perceptions and attitudes of MBA students is lacking, leading the authors of this article to survey a cohort of incoming MBA students at Arizona State University. The survey included self-evaluation of research skills, anticipated uses of library services and resources, and specific types of data/information the students thought would be most valuable during their studies. The survey uncovered differences based on how long the students had been away from higher education. The results are useful for business librarians and others working with graduate business students.

Academic library spaces and services have widely broadened their missions away from providing only traditional research services and quiet spaces for study. Today, academic libraries are increasingly repurposing space and redesigning services to become the hub of innovation on university campuses. The literature explores entrepreneurship and academic libraries from many perspectives but with a common theme of the library as a leader in support for entrepreneurship initiatives on campus.

Arizona State University (ASU) is known for both enormous size and scale, as well as excellence in research and innovation. These attributes are embodied in the ideal of the “New American University.” ASU Library, as a partner in the New American University, has reorganized itself, completed a large-scale renovation of its main library building, and created interdisciplinary divisions of librarians and other professionals, backed up by subject “knowledge teams” that address specific research needs of faculty and students. As a result, the library has become involved in nontraditional projects across the university. This article is useful for libraries seeking to remain relevant and align themselves with institutional priorities.
