3. Finding information

You're required to use academic references in your assignments and the Library Catalogue is a great place to find them.

Search the Library Catalogue to find relevant journal articles, books, and other resources in the collection.

To do a search, try using:

  • "double quotes" for phrases
  • truncation* to find the plural and other forms of a word
  • connect using AND, OR and NOT

Tweak your results using the filters on the left hand side of the page to:

  • Limit to articles from Peer Reviewed publications 
  • Limit by Date eg 2014 to 2019

Take a 15 minute tutorial to sharpen your skills and Learn to Search the Catalogue

Business Source Complete provides information covering all areas of business including accounting and finance; banking; finance and insurance; construction; computer science; economics and more. Includes country economic reports as well as detailed company profiles.

This is an example of an Advanced Search using Business Source Complete.

You can refine your results (Publication Date, Peer Reviewed, etc.) using the filters on the left hand side of the results screen.
