Finding Journal Articles: Finding articles: Business Source Complete

Want to Quickly Find Journals?

If you know a specific article that you want to read but don't know where to find it, use the Journal Search function. It tells you which Vanderbilt databases have the full text of your article. If the article is not available, it lets you request that the Library obtain a copy for you. This service is called ILL (or Interlibrary Loan.)

We also have access to journals via the Browzine platform, making it easy to keep up with journals in your area of study right from your tablet or smartphone. See the Browzine research guide for more information, or click on the Browzine logo while looking at a journal's information.

What is  ?

FindIt@VU provides direct links from a database citation to the fulltext of the article (if available.) This helps you when the database you are in does not have the rights to the full text of the article that you want to read.

You'll also see FindIt@VU buttons in Library Catalog.
