MBA 562 - Economic Aspects of Business Decisions

Week 3


By now, you should have already had many opportunities to search our two main business databases, ABI/Inform Collection, and Business Source Premier.

For this weekly assignment, you'll have three options:
1. Use the thesaurus in the business databases to find appropriate subject headings to search articles about productivity and costs in the railway industry. (See Week 1)
2. In the Advanced Search form, using keywords, find a few articles that sound good, and then open the Preview link to find the official subject headings that have been assigned to each article. (See Week 2)
3. Find an industry report on the railway industry that might discuss the industry from a cost perspective.
    Consult the Subject Guide titled,
Industry Information - Databases. You'll find out how to access industry reports in three of our business databases.
