The Business Information Center (BIC) is the business library serving Rice Business and the wider Rice community. Get all your information needs met, from books and journals to business databases by company or industry.

The Gilbert & Ruth Whitaker Business Information Center (BIC) is located on the second floor of McNair Hall. It includes a large reading room, an online resource room, and an additional study space containing reference materials and journals. The BIC is named in honor of Jones School's fourth dean, Gilbert R. Whitaker and his wife, Ruth. The Whitakers were instrumental in the planning and development of this space.

Although features from several architectural styles are used, the design of the library was heavily influenced by the late nineteenth-century arts and crafts movement. Elements of this movement are evident in many of the furnishings, particularly the enormous glass and metal light fixtures illuminating the reading room.
