Scholarly Business Research: Databases

Strategy for Searching Databases

Before searching University Libraries subscription based databases, you should prepare your search strategy by taking the following steps: 

  • Define topic
  • Brainstorm terms in order to identify keywords to use
    • Words used in the search are generally in the title, abstract, source, and subject fields of a record.
  • Be aware of Boolean operators, which you need to use in order to search our subscription-based databases
    • Or – for similar terms
    • And – to join different ideas

       For example:

tqm or total quality management

management and organizational culture
