The University Libraries strive to provide as many resources via the web for your searching convenience at any place or whenever you would like to do research.
For simple searching, you can try Business- Easy Search on the Business Information Services' website. This is a good place to start when you aren't certain where to go first. Type your phrase in the box, enclosed by parentheses, eg "Corporate Sustainability Reporting". It searches 4 of the major business-related literature databases for your convenience: ProQuest One Business, Business Source Ultimate, Scopus, and Academic Search Complete".
The Business Information Services (BIS) website also has Fast Answers, a database of frequently asked questions on a topic level. You can search the entire database or click on one of the areas of finance, accounting, economics, labor, companies, industries, etc. and look at the lists of questions. NOTE: This is not the place to do a company search on a specific company. Instead, it is a tool which will lead you to sources on how to find information on companies, industries, or topics.
