Business Source Elite is the best place to search for business information.
Search multiple databases at one time. Check the "Full Text" box to limit to online articles.
If you have a citation to a specific journal, here is how you can see if it is available online. Search in TrinCat for the journal title. Be sure to search the journal title, not the article title. On the results page, check the location of the journal. If it says "Deerfield Periodical Collection" it is in print in the library. If it says "Electronic Journal" it is available online. Check the dates to make sure the year you want is available. If it is not in TrinCat, you can request the article by borrowing from another library.
APA is the citation style used by students and writers in business. When writing your paper, use in-text citations with the author's last name, publication year and page number: (Miller, 2012, p. 83). At the end of your paper, include a Reference list with full citations.
