The purpose of this guide is to introduce and lead you to the various resources, free on the Internet and databases & books available through the University Library regarding doing business in Singapore. It will also provide some tips for searching the various databases. Note: this is not an exhaustive list as the University Library has hundreds of databases and over 13 million books.
Can I search the databases like I use Google? A: Yes and No. You can use "key words" as you do with Google, but as these are indexed with subjects or business terms, you should think of synonyms. But when searching with country terms, for example, you have to type the country's given name and not necessarily the acronym (DNC, vs Congo). The advantage of using a database that the library subscribes to is that it helps target/narrow the search and not get too many results to wade through.
