Find Articles

You will want to search Business Source Complete when looking for academic and non-academic articles published in business periodicals.  

I suggest searching by Select a Field (keyword) initially.  Once you know more about the topic, try searching by Subject to narrow your results to highly relevant items.

Here is an example of a search that includes two Subjects (financial performance and social responsibility of business).

Business Source Complete search results

If the complete article is not available, check the Blume Library's Journals List search to see if we have the periodical (journal, magazine, newspaper) in print or in another database.  

If not, you can always request articles from other libraries via Interlibrary Loan.

Journals List

Looking for a specific journal, magazine, or newspaper?

Use Journals List to search for the title of a journal, magazines, or newspaper and tell if the library offers online access or print access to that publication.

Interlibrary Loan

If our library does not have a book or article you need, St. Mary's University students, faculty and staff may order it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

Don't forget to ask a librarian for help if you have questions.
