IMI course participants perform the majority of their research using these resources. Searching for relevant articles can be a daunting task. The Library staff is available to show you how to find what you need and give you advanced search tips. Email alerts can also be created by journal or topic. This means, for example, you can receive an email containing the table of contents and article summaries from the latest issue of Harvard Business Review.
The IMI Library subscribes to journals across a number of databases. If you know the journal you want to review, this resource will tell you the database which contains the journal. Enter the title of the journal you want and A to Z will provide you with a link to the journal.

This is a citation management resource designed to help organise and correctly format bibliographies and references. RefWorks is linked to the IMI Library journal databases. This allows users to export citations directly without interrupting their research. A bit of work to learn to use RefWorks at the beginning of a research project is far better than hours of work manually constructing a bibliography at the end!
