ONLINE LIBRARY RESOURCES
One of the many benefits of being a student at the UWA Business School is that you have access through the Web to the full text of literally thousands of newspapers, magazines, and journals. These sources, available through the UWA library web site, may be viewed and downloaded as web pages (html), raw text, or pdf files.
MAIN DATABASES FOR MBA STUDENTS
There are dozens of databases available to you as a UWA student, but here are the sources most commonly used by students for their projects and reading interest:
ProQuest -- This is the granddaddy of information sources, offering thousands of business, psychology, and other journals and magazines in full-text. Proquest has more than 7,000 titles, some 3,500 in full text. It combines international, national and regional newspapers and periodicals to make a core collection in business, general reference, and news, incorporates general reference, arts, humanities, sciences, career and technical education, computing, etc. With a very user-friendly interface and fast response time, Proquest can search key words or specific publications. One problem is that several important journals only allow Proquest to show abstracts of articles published within the previous 12 months. When the article is more than one year old, Proquest can provide the full text. Some well-known business sources (e.g. Harvard Business review) are available only as abstracts, not full-text. However, most sources are available full-text as soon as they are published, so this is probably the first place to look for information.
EBSCO (Business Source Premier)—Business Source Premier includes the full-text of Harvard Business Review and other journals not available in Proquest. It provides full text for nearly 8,350 scholarly business journals and other sources. This database offers information in nearly every area of business including management, economics, finance, accounting, and international business. The database also includes other sources of full text information such as country economic reports from the EIU, Global Insight, ICON Group and CountryWatch and detailed company profiles for the world's 10,000 largest companies. It has a good interface and is reasonably fast. EBSCO Econlit also includes abstracts (but not full-text) to most economics literature.
Factiva -- Factiva provides full text to 2,500 newspapers around the world, including every major newspaper in Australia and New Zealand. Articles are available usually within a day of publication. Factiva is your main source for newspapers. It also has a handy one-click action to download files into formatted text (RTF). Factiva does not offer pdf files, however.
Science Direct -- If Proquest or EBSCO doesn’t offer the full text of an academic journal, Science Direct might have it.

Once in SuperSearch click on Find Resource and then type the name of the database (for e.g. Proquest) Then link out to the data base. If you are accessing from home you will need to enter in your details again. You will then have access to the database.
If you know the details of the article you want to find (for e.g. you know the author, title of the article, title of the journal, volume, issue and page number) you can check if the UWA Library has electronic access by doing a search on the journal title in the catalogue and then follow through the links to the correct volume and page number.
