You will be asked to find articles to support your answers in this class. Here are some hints to better searching for articles.
Best databases to start with:
Huge database. Has articles from both magazines, newspapers and trade journals.
Wall Street Journal
This is THE business newspaper. Published daily. Great source for small articles about specific companies or issues in logistics.
Business Source Complete
Biggest business focused database we have. Source for articles and reports on business and companies. To avoid being overwhelmed, use the refine buttons on the left hand side to find articles that are full-text or from a particular source.
Hints for better searching:
"Different words different results."
Instead of just searching "supply disruption" try these words and phrases. Combining words will also help with searches that produce too many results.
supply and demand
automobile supplies industry
supply chain management
"business logistics and grocery"
"suppliers and automotive"
"coffee industry and suppliers"
Citing your sources:
Not only will you include information from the articles either in direct quotes or paraphrased form, you are also expected to create an MLA based citation. Examples of how that looks are here. If citing is new to you, make an appointment with a writing coach in the Learning Commons for more help. It can make a difference in the quality of your work.
