This guide describes the services available to members of the Wharton and Penn communities from the Lippincott Library.

About Lippincott Library

Founded in 1927 with a gift from Joanna Wharton Lippincott, daughter of Joseph Wharton, the Lippincott Library of the Wharton School is Penn's business research library, serving Wharton and the University of Pennsylvania community. We support faculty, students, staff and alumni by providing the collections and services that help them develop rigorous analysis and actionable knowledge.

Located in Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center, Lippincott maintains an outstanding digital library that includes over 100 electronic business resources with access to data, journals, news, analyst reports, market research, and more.
