International Business (BU 278) - Prof. Dhingra: Finding Articles About Your Company

Business Databases

Find Books in the Library Catalog

Search below to find a BOOKS in our catalog (including electronic books) or to determine if we have a particular journal (print or electronic).  Most library books are on the upper level of the library.  E-books are available online from anywhere, but you will be required to enter your SHU network login & password to read them.

Submit Text, Select Field, and Press Enter


If you do not find the item you are looking for, fill out an interlibrary loan form so we can borrow the book or article for you (this is a service that we provide free of charge to students, faculty, and staff).



Find Articles in the Library

Library databases - accessible from the library website or this research guide - contain information that is NOT readily available on the Web.  The library subscribes to a variety of business databases that contain journals/articles that will help you with your research.

Business Source Premier & the ABI/Inform databases are great resources for article searching on key topics for your assignment.


Below are screenshots from the Business Source Premier Advanced search page:


Pay special attention to the Subject Terms that are provided to you by the database. They are telling you how this particular subject is being tagged in their database. In this case "Organizational Culture" is known as "Corporate Culture."

I re-run the search using "Corporate Culture" and I retrieve 4 X the amount of the original search results.

Retrieving under 50 results is determinant of a good search strategy (keyword string). Your team could stop here and browse through the results for relevant articles or if the team wanted to go a step further, you could add limiters to the existing search string. Things such as selecting the "Full Text" box or adding subject limiters to your existing search string as exampled below.
