Business Source Complete allows you to quickly locate information related to a particular company using the Company Information tool.
Note that when you search for a company, you might find it at the top of the list, but you might not. It is possible that the company is listed with a slightly different name. If you don't see it immediately, things to try include:
You are required to find recent articles from any of the following sources: Fortune, Forbes, BusinessWeek, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times.
The first three of these have full text in Business Source Complete. You will find articles from WSJ listed in Business Source Complete, but to read the full text you will have to find it on the 2nd floor of the library in the newspapers section. SCC keeps the most recent year of WSJ in print. (We also have Forbes, Fortune, and Business Week in print if you want to browse.)
The Business Department can give you a shared password to use for to access the wsj.com website. Instructions for finding New York Times articles are located further down this page.
Are you getting too few results?
The database does not search the full text of the articles by default. You will turn up more articles if you tell the database to also search the full text. To do so:
The New York Times is not included in Business Source Complete. Instead, use LexisNexis Academic. (You can also try searching at nytimes.com, but you can only view a small number of articles for free.)
The link below will take you to a search screen that is limited to the New York Times:
Type the name of the company you are researching and search. When you get results, look on the left and you'll find that you can limit by company if you like.
