Gift to business school library for new research center
STANFORD - Thanks to a major gift, the Stanford University Graduate School of Business will establish an innovative, high-tech research facility within the J. Hugh Jackson Library.
Named after its donors, Claude N. Rosenberg Jr., MBA '52, and Louise J. Rosenberg, the Rosenberg Corporate Research Center will occupy most of the first floor of the three-story library and will contain the library's entire reference area. Remodeling to accommodate the center will begin this summer; dedication will take place fall quarter.
The Rosenbergs' gift will create a repository for the latest in information resources and technology, allowing the Jackson Library to combine the depth of the best academic libraries, the strong client service commitment of the finest corporate libraries, and the most effective mix of electronic information resources available in the marketplace.
As a first step toward that end, the library was combined with the Business School's computing services into a single Department of Information Resources in April 1991.
At a special "Gateway to Information Fair" in November, faculty, students and staff tried out a variety of online and CD-ROM databases to select those services that best suited their needs. Some databases are already in place, while many others will be purchased by the time the new research center opens its doors in September.
Claude Rosenberg is senior partner of RCM Capital Management (formerly Rosenberg Capital Management) in San Francisco. Louise Rosenberg is director of the RCM Charitable Fund, which supports children in the Bay Area.
Both Rosenbergs attended Stanford as undergraduates and Claude Rosenberg also is an alumnus of the Business School. For many years, he was a volunteer investment manager for the Business School Trust, an endowment fund managed on a volunteer basis by the school's alumni. He served on the school's advisory council, which he also chaired, and was president of the Stanford Business School Alumni Association. In 1984, Rosenberg received the Business School's Ernest C. Arbuckle Award in recognition of his leadership in the private, public and nonprofit sectors.
