Comment Icon0 Articles and news stories can provide valuable and current insight into an industry. Maag Library provides access to several online databases that are useful for locating journal articles and news stories. To locate industry profiles and surveys within the databases, see Industry Research: Industry Profiles & Surveys. While the databases listed below provide a good starting point for your research, other databases are also available. To view the complete list of available databases, go to the Maag Library Home Page and click on Research Databases on the left side of the screen under Quick Links.

Comment Icon0 Many articles may be found full-text within the databases, while others may be found in print in the bound journals on the sixth floor of the library. If you are having trouble locating the full text of an article, check Maag Journal Finder to view all print & electronic holdings for the journal. If MJF does not lead you to full text access of the article (print or electronic) use the Online Article Request Form to order the article electronically. InterLibrary Loan can locate most articles and will email you with a PDF attachment. This process takes approximately one week.
