Your assignment for Forum posts requires that you find a news article which discusses accounting, finance, ethics, or something that would be an appropriate discussion topic for this class.
You can find the current issues of a variety of publications, both newspapers and periodicals, in many of our databases. Here are a few:
In: ABI/Inform Collection (30 days embargo)
Peer Reviewed Sources
If you need to find an article from a peer reviewed source, search one of the business databases and remember to limit your results to "peer reviewed" or "academic". Here are two titles that will be useful.
if you need to consult a specific publication, like the Wall Street Journal, you can find out if we have access to it, in full text, from one of our databases. Either view a three minute video tutorial on our video tutorial page, titled, "Find a Journal"
Follow these instructions:
1. From the library's home page, select the green Journals tab.
2. In the Search by publication box, type the title you need. eg.Wall Street Journal, then Search.
3. In the Results page, select the third entry, Wall Street Journal
