ProQuest Central via NCLIVE
The ultimate cross-disciplinary research tool, ProQuest Central brings together 30 of our most highly used databases to create the largest single academic research resource available today.
This database provides access to historical coverage of scholarly journals in a wide range of disciplines. Coverage goes back to the first issue (some as far back as the 1800s), but does not include the most recent issues (usually last 3-5 years).
WorldCat on First Search
FirstSearch from WorldCat searches libraries worldwide (including Smith Library) for all types of valuable resources, including monographs (books), articles and archival materials (microfilm, microfiche and microform).
If an item is not held by Smith Library it can be borrowed through Interlibrary Loan.
CIA World Factbook
Although not specifically a business reference website, the World Factbook provides some wonderful information on countries worldwide including economic profiles and pertinent government information.
HathiTrust Digital Library
