Resources for this class

Business news and articles may be another way to explore the topics in this class. For current news, use the following:

For business articles, from more practical reporting on the markets or an event's effects on the markets, try ABI/INFORM or Business Source Premier. For increasingly scholarly, theoretical studies, use Business Source Premier and ScienceDirect - which includes the most highly regarded business, finance, and management journals as well as "science." (The most theoretical, number-crunching articles will be found in ScienceDirect.)

I'm not sure if "analysts' reports" are pertinent to this class, but just in case...

Advice for Enhancing Your Research Success

Here are a few tips to for researching:

  • Google often isn't helpful. The best business information is not free.  However, the library does subscribe to numerous resources.
  • When using these databases, adjust your search terms if you're not getting the results you hoped for--try synonyms and scour article titles, abstracts, and subject headings in your search results for likely search terms to use.  Sometimes a thesaurus or encyclopedia come in handy when brainstorming search terms.
  • Use double quotes to search multiple words as a phrase (e.g. "new age" finds these terms in exact order).
  • Use an asterisk to substitute for letters at the end of a word (e.g. crit* finds critic, criticism, critique etc.).
  • If you can't find what you're looking for, schedule an appointment!
