There are two ways to locate business-specific databases in the Walden Library. The first is by going to Research by Subject and clicking on the button. This will provide a list of different options in the dropdown. You are going to select business and management. This is going to take you to the business and management research home page.

Once you are on the business and management research homepage, scroll down until you see the business and management databases tab.

Click on the tab to display a list of business related databases. The first three databases, ABI/INFORM, Business Source Complete, and Emerald Insight are all business specific. Sage Journals and ScienceDirect are multidisciplinary, which means they are going to have a little bit of everything, including business and management related journals.

This is not a comprehensive list of the all the databases we have but it is a place to start. Click on the title of the database you wish to access. Please note that you may be asked to log in. It will be the same information as your student portal.

The second way to locate business and management database from the Walden Library homepage is by clicking on the Databases A-Z button.
