Scholarly vs. Popular

Websites, book, articles and other sources of information are designed to attract the attention of particular audiences.  Some are geared for general consumption by the public (such as magazines, newspapers, etc.) while others are intended for use by researchers (such as books, journals, etc.).  Before using a source that you've located, it is best to evaluate its intended use.

Please see the "Evaluate Sources" tab on our Library Research Guide.

Key Journal

Harvard Business Review is a popular, scholarly journal among those in the business programme.

Finding a Particular Article

If you have the citation of an article, you can use the library's Journal Search to see if it's available in the library. Search for the Journal Title, then choose the database with the right volume and year.

Now navigate to volume, issue, and page number of your article. Remember, you will need to know the complete citation of an article to find it via the Journal Search.

Look for a Full-text link (PDF or HTML).

Online Databases (U of W Access)

If you are looking for articles about a certain topic, you will want to search for the topic in one of our subscription Databases. You can select a broad, multi-disciplinary database (like the Popular Databases) or a narrow, subject-specific database (for example Business and Administration). Listed below are a selection of popular scholarly journal databases for Business and Administration.

Different databses will look different, but they are all designed to help you find Journal Articles. Try searching for your topic keywords. Explore the features that allow you to limit your results by Publication Date, Language, etc.

When you find an article you're interested in, look for a Full-text link (PDF or HTML). If there is no link to the full-text, try using the Find Text button. This will search through our other databases to see if the full-text is available elsewhere. if none of our databases have the full-text, you will have to request an Interlibrary Loan.

Requesting an Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan Requests can be submitted one of two ways:

  • by filling out a request form on our website.
  • using the Find Text link in one of our databases.

For example, if, when searching in an Ebsco database, you discover a resource that is unavailable here at the UofW, you can click Request an Interlibrary Loan. It will take few seconds to search for the item at other institutions. You may view a list of institutions where this item is available, or simply proceed. Upon entering your barcode, your request is placed.

Interlibrary loan materials may take a week or longer to arrive, so please have patience. If you item has not arrived within ten days, contact the Interlibrary Loan department at 786-9814.
