Abstract

This research used a sample of titles drawn from the Harvard Business School Core Collection to examine the holdings of libraries of institutions offering the Master of Business Administration degree within the state of Pennsylvania. Of  the  82 books selected from the Core Collection, the average number of books owned by the libraries was 25.3 (30.8 percent). In addition, the results showed that those libraries supporting AACSB accredited MBA programs owned significantly more of the sample of titles (37.06, 45.2 percent) than did libraries supporting non-AACSB accredited programs (16.9, 20.6 percent).
