Suggestion for New Title Purchase: Modern labor economics

Monday, October 6th, 2014

Q: Suggestion for New Title Purchase – Title: Modern labor economics: theory and public policy
Author: Ronald G. Ehrenberg, Robert S. Smith
Publisher & where & when published: Pearson Education, 2015
Where you saw this item mentioned: Economic Development – Todaro and Smith
Your affiliation: SFU Graduate Student

A: Thank you for taking the time to recommend the library purchase “Modern labor economics: theory and public policy”. We appreciate it when people send in suggestions and try our best to accommodate them. In the case of textbooks, however, unless these are requested by instructors for course instruction, we do not typically purchase them. And, I see the library currently holds several editions of this text including the most recent 2012 edition. [http://troy.lib.sfu.ca/record=b5740365~S1a]

The 2015 edition has not been published but when it is, you may be able to request it from another library using our interlibrary loan service [http://www.lib.sfu.ca/find/document-delivery/request-form] which is free.

Best,

Carla
