Business: Articles / Databases

This guide is to help Ara's business students get the most from their library.

Finding Journal Articles

There are three main ways to find the articles you need:

  • Search Ara Library databases for articles on your subject. 

(Use this method if you need to find your own articles for an assignment).

  • Look for a particular article from a recommended reading list.

(Use this method if you already have a reading list with the details of an article, e.g. author, article title and Journal title).
