Business Essentials

Browsing business news

Viewing today's newspaper in its "newsstand" version can be useful - photos (and graphics such as charts) add a lot to the story. And, more content (TV listings, movie info., festivals/events, ads, and more) - Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Chicago Tribune - and many more dailies - are in PressReader.

Or, you may want to quickly browse headlines in a newspaper - and then view the text for an article of interest -

       for that, Factiva database is ideal. Select "Home" - scroll down a bit, for the Wall Street Journal and New York Times - articles by Section (Biotechnology, Airlines, Business, etc.) - past 2 weeks.

The GT Library also has paid for digital subscriptions to the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Financial Times. After you create an account (with your GT email address), you can read articles (many, not all graphics) and more, such as comments/opinions about articles. A useful feature is that it is updated throughout the day, and may have videos of breaking news. You can often share the article.

Searching - text of articles - is ideal for business news about a company or industry. And, our "full-text" newspaper databases have permanent links. US Newsstream and Nexis Uni are your best bets, as well as Global Newsstream.

Searching full-text news sources

Periodicals and journals - especially "trade" periodicals - have a wealth of information.  Trade periodical articles are typically written by professionals in an industry - and the audience is other professionals in that industry.  Also - a cover story provides a great starting point.  Any many articles are full-text, through our large database providers - saving you time!
