Search many different newspapers, magazines, and journals at one time. This search is best when you don't know the name of a specific magazine to search. Below is a listing of just a few key business databases you will use often.
To see a list of the databases that we have, go to:
To limit to just business-related database, select the topic "Business" in the right-hand column.
If you are looking for articles from a specific title, like Fortune magazine, this link will take you to a search engine that will display the database that has the title or if it's available in print in the library. It also tells the dates we have available.
The words that you put in the search boxes in the databases determine whether you get good results.
Here are tips for choosing keywords:
* Try using nouns (person, place or thing). Other parts of speech are rarely used. Most databases do not search for short words like: a, an, the, as, in, of, if, it. etc.
* Try using synonyms (words that mean almost the same thing). ex: commercial and advertisement mean almost the same thing.
* Search for articles where the keywords appear in a specific order by using quotation marks around them. Searching for "consumer behavior" or "genetically modified foods" only brings back articles where the words are in that exact order.
* Combine keywords with AND, OR, NOT.
If you are having trouble deciding on the keywords to use in your search, come by the desk in the Library and we can help.
