USC opened the College of Commerce and Business Administration in 1920, one of the first business schools in Southern California. The school was renamed the Marshall School of Business in 1997 following a major donation from alumnus Gordon S. Marshall. The Gaughan & Tiberti Library was established in August 2016 as the new home of the former Roy P. Crocker Business Library in Hoffman Hall. The library supports the teaching, learning, and research needs of Marshall School of Business students and faculty as well as the entire USC academic community. The library hosts a significant collection of business databases, and maintains a core collection of books, reference materials, and business periodicals.
