The ProQuest database also contains journal articles but covers different publications with some overlap. ProQuest has launched a new platform for the start of the academic year. If you have any questions the Library staff are happy to help you adjust to the new look and to show you some of the new features.
Helpful Hint: In both databases email alerts can be created by journal or topic. This means, for example, you can receive a monthly email containing the table of contents and article summaries from the latest issue of Harvard Business Review with links to the full-text.
Journal Locator - This resources is a searchable list of all the IMI Library's journals - both electronic and hard copy. Enter the title of a journal and it will provide you with a link to the database containing the journal you want. For example, if you enter 'MIT Sloan Management Review' the result will show the coverage offered by each database. In this example ProQuest contains the more comprehensive and current subscription (from 1988 - present).
RefWorks: Citation Manager - This resource will help you to manage your references and format your bibliography. When a single article is on view, both Business Source Premier and ProQuest offer 'Export Citation' buttons. Using these buttons sends the bibliographic information to RefWorks and into your personal RefWorks account. If you are going to use an article for your research you must cite it appropriately. Refworks makes citation and creating bibliographies simple.
