1.Go to the library homepage at:
2. For Books: Click on "Books/catalog". Use key words to search. E.g. "Supply Chain Management" or "Operations Management." You may use the pull down menu next to the search box to limit your search to all books or just electronic books
3. For Articles: Click on "Articles". Use key words in the search boxes, e.g. "Supply Chain" and "Compliance" or "Operations" and "Compliance". You may wish to initially search for all items (scholarly as well as abstracts and news items). You may elect to restrict your search to "scholarly and peer reviewed" articles by clicking the two boxes below the search boxes before you click search. Be certain to search more than one database--the contents are generally unique to each database! I recommend beginning with Research Library (Proquest), then Business Source Premiere (EBSCO), followed by Academic Search Premiere (EBSCO), at a minimum, from the full listing of available databases under the "Articles" tab.
4. For Newpaper articles: Click on the Newpaper databases under the "N's" on the "databases A-Z" link from the library home page.
5. For Company or Industry information: Click on the "Hoovers" database under the "H's" on the "Databases A-Z" page from the library home page for Company & Financial Information sectionof the webpage. Use the tabs to search either by industry or by company name. Note: the database contains primarily publicly traded companies, not privately owned companies.
