BADM 708 Special Topics - Study of Corporate Universities: Sources for your study of Corporate Universities


First, some comments about these sources:

Lexis Nexis Academic has a shocking amount of material on your topic, be sure to select articles by type (e.g. trade journals) using the links on the left hand side of the page. There is also a Search within results box in the upper right hand corner of the results page.

WorldCat will list books on the subject (CU holdings are marked). The Libraries Worldwide: link will show you a list of libraries that own the item (a good excuse for a road trip).

Use the Advanced feature of Google Scholar to look for articles not available at Campbell and to track down works cited in other sources. Full text, including CU holdings are listed on the right hand side of the page.

ERIC is a U.S. Department of Education database that catalogs documents about education.

Academic Source Premiere and Business Source Premier should be familiar to you.

Completeness demands that you search Dissertation Abstracts ... the data express link is the best we have at the moment.

Finally, we need your comments! Please rate the sources (one to five stars) and please share additional web-sites that you think should be included in this Research Guide by entering the link in the box in the right-hand column of this page.

Next, a few reminders:

1. Enter terms in quotation marks to bundle phrases e.g 'corporate university' (you may also have to be sensitive to truncation - 'corporate universities' check the help function for the syntax your database uses)

2. Use the Check Campbell Library for print or online version link if a record does not provide full text of your document - this federated search will look for your article in all our holdings, you may be pleasantly surprised.

3. Use the Journals tab on the Library Homepage to locate which databases have the journal title you are looking for. Be careful to observe the availability dates and embargoes for your journal.

3. Get ahead of the curve - you may need to use interlibrary loan to receive some of your material and that takes time - email THE COMPLETE CITATION of critical documents you cannot find to your librarian, Dan Maynard immediately. Be sure to provide a meaningful subject line on your message.

4. Documents that have doi (digital object identifiers) are becoming easy to look for online. Cut and paste the doi into the search box.
