Business Magazines

Periodicals have a wealth of information.  For a large corporation or topic, a cover story provides a great starting point.  The Library's paid subscriptions are supplemented by what is available through our large database providers - saving you time! 

Listed here are our most popular business periodical databases. Because of different exclusive content, and how a search is performed, it is highly recommended to always search in both of the first two databases.  For niche industries, or small industries - Factiva might be a best bet (note: an article could be a press release about availability of an expensive report).  For large industries, that are written about extensively, Business Abstracts would be a best bet to start.
