Why use a journal database

SVC has databases of magazines, journals and newspapers.  Some are for members of a profession or career. If using the databases from home, you will be asked for a logon and password.  use your school logon and password.

ProQuest, a database with the ABI/INFORM Trade & Industry section, searches more than 1200 business periodicals with a trade or industry focus. It provides users with the latest industry news, product and competitive information, marketing trends, and a wide variety of other topics. It contains publications on every major industry, including finance, insurance, transportation, construction, and many more.  Most of these publications are full-text on the database.

EbscoHost has some professional publications but not many in the trades.
