This Libguide is designed specifically for you, the College of Business student. It will help you quickly get started with your research. Google is great but not all information is free or openly available. Here, you can find introductions to various kinds of library databases with instructions on how to search, tips on search strategies, and recommended resources for conducting research. We also distinguish what you can find on the open Net.
Bookmark this page, and you will find it a good friend whenever you need help or inspiration. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact Business Information Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Easy Search - Business, located on the Business Information Services Homepage, is a search and discovery tool that allows users to simultaneously search multiple article databases and indexing and abstracting services. The default settings of Easy Search (Multi-subject Resources selected in the pull-down menu) includes general business databases and resources that serve as a starting point to help users discover information about research topics. Easy Search is by no means intended to be comprehensive since information about topics can be found in multiple databases.
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.
